Houston Food Bank

To meet the growing issue of hunger and expand its distribution capacity over three-fold, the Houston Food Bank (HFB) renovated a neglected, thirty year old, “tilt-up” warehouse. The renovation of the 308,000 SF building includes dry and refrigerated warehouses, staff offices, volunteer community rooms and café, social service offices, correction department facilities, adult classrooms, food pantry, and conference facilities.

In working with Lorie Westrick and her team, RdlR has helped the Houston Food Bank to create a project vision that truly reflects our organization’s mission of leading the fight against hunger. With RdlR’s assistance, we’ve been able to appropriately convey the scope of our plan to donors who have subsequently stepped up to support the campaign
