Comida Food Drive 2014


HPD, Houston Citizens' Police Academy Alumni Association, Fiesta Mart and
the Pepsi Bottling Group will once again join together to sponsor the annual
"Comida" Drive.

To donate, go to http://www.houstonpolicefoundation.org/comida

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 Thursday, December 4 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

12201 East Fwy

8320 FM 1960

7510 Bellfort

5600 Mykawa

4200 San Jacinto

6200 Bellaire

11240 Fondren

12355 Main St.

12584 Westheimer

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
