Montgomery County Food Fair provides food to 500 families
On Saturday, April 14, 2018, four Montgomery County Rotary Clubs and Interact Clubs joined together to volunteer and help provide food to those in need at the Woodforest Bank Stadium.
By sponsoring a “Food Fair” through the Montgomery County Food Bank’s Food Fair program, volunteers unloaded, set-up and distributed food directly to the steady line of cars from 7 a.m until just before noon. During the Food Fair, 500 families were each provided 145 pounds of food – including fresh produce.
Judy Olson, President of the Rotary Club of The Woodlands, shared, “It is such a rewarding experience to partner with the Montgomery County Food Bank, Rotary Clubs, and Interact Clubs to provide food to families in need. The food fair is one of the Rotary Club of The Woodlands’s favorite service projects.”

Like a market on wheels, the Montgomery County Food Banks’s Food Fair Program is a traveling pantry that delivers nutritious food, including fresh produce and refrigerated items, directly to communities with a high need. Each food fair is sponsored by an individual, local or religious organization, corporation, or community group.
