Houston's Food Bank is the largest in the country. It helps assure those in need of adequate food throughout the Houston and Southeast Texas area, serving 66000 meals a day. The funds will assure 75000 meals in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

“AARP has a deep commitment to help alleviate the hunger issue in this country. This time of the year, when so many of us have so much to be thankful for, we must not forget those who struggle to put on their tables_ and to get adequate nutrition for themselves and their families.” said Friedrikson.

Friedrikson and Greene fielded questions from journalist following the presentation.
