Rockets and Second Servings of Houston to Host "Thanksgiving's on Us" Food Distribution

Posted: November 16, 2020 -- 3:04 p.m. CT

This Thursday, November 19, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., the Houston Rockets and Second Servings of Houston are hosting a "Thanksgiving's On Us" food distribution presented by Kroger outside of Toyota Center: LAZ "Rockets" Parking Lot (1317 Austin, St, 77002). Located across LaBranch Street from Toyota Center's box office.

This contactless drive-thru distribution will focus on providing perishable and non-perishable Thanksgiving-themed items to Houstonians in need for the holiday. This event is free and open to the public.

Volunteers from the Rockets and Second Servings will distribute 2,000 family-sized dinner boxes (equivalent to 16,000 chef-prepared meals), prepared by Hess Corporation's Food Services Team, along with assorted seasonal produce from Brothers Produce, Ashcraft Bakery dinner rolls, stuffing, Southern Ice Cream cones, Frito-Lay chips, hand sanitizer and KN95 masks.

"We know Thanksgiving will look different for so many Houstonians this holiday season," said Rockets Community Relations Director Sarah Joseph. "Partnering with Second Servings and Kroger gives us the opportunity to provide a holiday meal to those that otherwise might not have received one during this tough year."

"The events of this year have affected our communities significantly; and sadly, we have seen an increased number of families affected by food insecurity and hunger. Many Houstonians worry where their next meal will come from – and it's Kroger's responsibility, as the local grocer here in Houston, to help feed these families whether they have the ability to shop with us, or not," said Joe Kelley, President of Kroger, Houston. "Our goal is to end hunger in our communities – and to help families in need through this holiday season and we're happy to share that mission with Second Servings."

This marks the third food distribution between the Houston Rockets and Second Servings of Houston. To date, over 45,000 meals have been distributed through the partnership.

Those interested in donating to help Houstonians in need this Thanksgiving can text SERVINGS to 50155. All donations will go toward Second Servings' mission to fight hunger and reduce food waste in Houston.
