The food drive provides food for more than 3,500 families in the city of Houston and last year raised $48,000 in cash donations.  All cash donations are used to purchase basic food staples packaged for distribution to families.

Beginning today through Sunday, December 7, you can donate at one of 14 Fiesta stores:

2300 N. Shepherd
1175 Edgebrook
800 S. Wayside
4711 Airline
10401 Jensen

The "Comida" Drive began in December 1985 with an officer's concern for the less fortunate citizens of Houston.  That began what is today one of the largest food drives in the city of Houston.  During the first year, approximately 600 families received a box of non-perishable food.  Each box fed a family of four during the holiday.

The distribution of the food will be held at a later date to churches that pre-registered to participate in the program.  For more information, contact the HPD Public Affairs Office at 713-308-3200 or go to
