H-E-B is this years proud sponsor for our food drive event.
H-E-B Food Bank Assistance Program is one of the strongest in the Nation. Last year, we delivered 25.8 million pounds of food and non-perishables worth more than $41.6 million to food banks across Texas and Mexico.
For more than 100 years, our commitment and involvement in the community has been an important part of the way we do business. We're proud to support initiatives like the H-E-B Food Bank Assistance Program, our annual Feast of Sharing holiday dinners, and the Spirit of H-E-B trailer that provides on-site relief in areas devastated by natural disasters.
It's our way of saying thank you for allowing us to be your neighbor. We call it H-E-B's Spirit of Giving. In this spirit, we have contributed five percent of pre-tax earnings to public and charitable programs since the 1930s. To learn more visit heb.com/community
