H-E-B Hunger Relief
Hunger relief has been a key focus for H‑E‑B since the first store opened in 1905. For more than a century now, H‑E‑B’s commitment and involvement in the communities it serves has been an important part of the way the company does business. Through the support of initiatives like the H‑E‑B Hunger Relief Program and the annual Feast of Sharing holiday dinners, H‑E‑B is able to give back to its customers and communities across the state and demonstrate the H‑E‑B Spirit of Giving.
The H‑E‑B Hunger Relief Program works year‑round to raise awareness and battle hunger in Texas and Mexico. In 2020, H‑E‑B donated more than 41 million pounds of food to Texas and Mexico food banks, a 35-percent increase from the prior year. Since 1982, the year the program was founded, H-E-B has donated more than 1 billion pounds of food to 5,500 non-profit organizations in Texas and Mexico.
