The Place At Barker Cypress Feeds Hundreds In Houston And Is Named May's Community Of The Month

May 30, 2022

Each month, Move For Hunger chooses a community that displays a huge dedication to ending hunger. This month, The Place at Barker Cypress, located in Houston, Texas, was awarded Community of the Month!

This May, The Place at Barker Cypress collected more than 400lbs of donations from their participation in an MC Companies food drive. This amount of donated food equals about 335 meals that will be donated to those in need. Donated items received from this food drive were transported by members from The Place at Barker Cypress and taken to Katy Christian Ministries Food Pantry in Katy, Texas.

This was The Place at Barker Cypress’s first food drive through Move For Hunger, and we’re excited to see the progression of their impact throughout 2022! MC Companies has been a partner since 2020, and we’re beyond grateful for every one of their properties that has joined the fight against hunger! 

In Texas, over 4 million people face hunger, with 1 in 7 children not knowing where their next meals will come from- so every donation is appreciated and much needed!
