Feast of Sharing - 2020 Update

Dates: 10/21/2020 - 11/26/2020



Due to ongoing public health concerns, this year’s H-E-B Feast of Sharing will not include large-scale, in-person dinner events and volunteer opportunities. H-E-B is committed to celebrating the holidays with our communities and will donate more than 340,000 meals to food banks and hunger relief organizations in Texas and Mexico during November and December.

H-E-B will make monetary and food donations to 18 Texas food banks and 40 hunger relief agencies. For ways to help or to find assistance, visit your local food bank or check H-E-B Newsroom for a list of food banks the H-E-B Feast of Sharing will support through this year’s efforts.
