We’re all seen the devastating news from Hurricane Harvey’s aftermath. During times of crisis, it often provides an opportunity of kindness. Both witnessing and participating in seemingly small acts of kindness can make the largest impact.
Here at Purium, our Co-founders Amy (who was born and raised in Texas) and Dave, were quick to get involved with the relief effort. While clean water, clothes, blankets, towels, toiletries and diapers are surely needed, food is in high demand. Though peanut butter and jelly sandwiches can be the typical go-to in an emergency situation, it isn’t necessarily high quality or fitting for people with food allergies.
Luckily, we’re in the business of cost effective superfoods that are gluten-free, nut-free, vegan and non-GMO.
Thanks to our good friend Jodi Parker, we were connected to a food bank in San Antonio where many of the Houston victims have found shelter.
Straight from the website itself, “The San Antonio Food Bank takes pride in fighting hunger, feeding hope in our 16 county service area. We believe that no child should go to bed hungry, adults should not have to choose between a hot meal and utilities, nor a senior sacrifice medical care for the sake of a meal. Founded in 1980, The San Antonio Food Bank has quickly grown to serve 58,000 individuals a week in one of the largest service areas in Texas. Our focus is for clients to have food for today but to also have the resources to be self-sufficient in the future.” To learn more about them, head to the San Antonio Food Bank website for more!
