How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Houston

We’re committed to supporting our employees’ health and safety and to addressing our local communities’ most critical needs. That’s why we donated $100 to local hunger-relief organizations for each Bank of America employee in the U.S. who let us know they’ve received a booster shot.

Through this effort, our team in Houston recently presented Houston Food Bank with a check for $125,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Hong Ogle, President of Bank of America Houston, about our role in keeping Houston moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Houston recently surpassed Los Angeles and New York as the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the nation. It's also the Energy Capital of the World and home to the largest medical center in the world, a combination that offers a unique opportunity to create a pipeline for jobs in our low-income communities. Bank of America is doing our part in multiple ways, including working with historically black colleges to create programs that help students complete the education and training necessary to compete and succeed in today's workforce. We continue to fund summer youth programs, connecting 16-to-24-year-olds with jobs to earn money and work in fields of interest. We also support numerous nonprofits that help individuals and families in Houston plan for greater economic mobility through access to food, shelter and other fundamental needs. We're a resilient and close community here, leaning on one another through challenging times, not so long ago from Hurricane Harvey and now through the health crisis. The spirit of volunteerism is alive here, and we're putting our resources to work, helping our nonprofits in every way possible.

Mobilizing a Network of Workers to Deliver Food Aid

As needs more than doubled overnight, the Houston Food Bank is finding help from all corners of the community to distribute more than 1 million pounds of meat, produce, canned goods and other food every day through local pantries and community partners. We’re partnering with the Houston Food Bank to help scale up their support to continue to serve those in need.

Racial equality and economic opportunity

At Bank of America, we’re committed to addressing the root causes of inequality through a company-wide commitment to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity across diverse communities. We are doing this by building upon our existing efforts and leveraging our strengths: creating more affordable housing and expanding home ownership, increasing lending and support to minority-owned small businesses, championing job training and career readiness and addressing health disparities like access to care. We also know we can’t solve these challenges alone, so we’re partnering with other corporations, local nonprofits and community leaders across the country who share our vision for creating meaningful change.
