Austin, Texas-based Favor, the on-demand delivery service that was acquired by H-E-B in 2018, has announced a partnership with Feeding Texas for the holiday season.
Through the end of the year, customers can give any amount to Feeding Texas after every order via the app or online at favordelivery.com/donate/FeedingTexas. Favor will match customer contributions up to $25,000 total.
“We are grateful to Favor and its customers for joining us in the fight against hunger this holiday season,” said Celia Cole, CEO of Feeding Texas.
“Double-digit inflation is making it harder than ever for Texas families to put food on the table, gas in the car, and pay the rent. Our partnership with Favor helps us raise awareness of hunger and advocate for solutions to ensure that every Texan has access to the food and resources they need to survive and thrive.”
Favor’s contributions have totaled more than 1.2 million meals to Feeding Texas and its network of 21 food banks has through a series of donations and fundraising campaigns since 2019.
“Favor is honored to have a longstanding partnership with Feeding Texas to help end hunger across our state,” said Jag Bath, Favor CEO.
“When we partnered with Feeding Texas earlier this year during Hunger Action Month, we were thrilled to achieve our goal of donating $25,000 – 100,000 meals – in October, and we are looking forward to doubling our impact for our final give back campaign of the year.”
Contributions help Feeding Texas serve millions of people experiencing hunger and food security:
- Texas is one of nine states with higher food insecurity than the national average;
- Nearly 4 million Texans struggle with hunger and food insecurity;
- One in five Texas children experience hunger;
- Eleven percent of households with seniors in Texas face food insecurity; and
- Hunger hits Texans of color harder, with one in four Black Texans and one in five Latinx Texans facing the threat of hunger.
