As part of the ongoing development of a close working relationship between The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Mormon) and the Greater Houston and Central Texas American Heart Association (AHA), representatives met to tour the area LDS welfare complex on Hafer Road in north Houston. The tour included an LDS chapel, bishops’ storehouse and peanut butter cannery.
In the wake of widespread flooding and loss in the Houston area the local Mormon peanut butter cannery has come to the aid of the Houston Food Bank with an additional shipment. Though the flood waters have receded, the aftermath is still impacting many area families. The Houston Food Bank distributes to locations in eighteen southeast Texas counties, including 600 hunger relief agencies, many in areas hard hit by the recent deluge.
