Hundreds of needy Houston families received immunizations, food supplies, dental and health screenings and other assistance at Food and Resource Fairs hosted by South Texas Dental in conjunction with several social service agencies.
Needy families gathered at several South Texas Dental offices in Houston to receive assistance from the Houston Food Bank, Harris County Public & Environmental Services and several other local organizations. More then 450 families were assisted at three Food and Resource Fairs where more than 30,000 pounds of fresh produce was distributed.
Counselors also assisted families with applications for the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and Medicaid/CHIP insurance.
“These events are vital to bringing essential resources to under-served communities,” says Joshua Moreno, South Texas Dental community relations director.
