Silver Eagle Distributors and Bud Light Houston Give Back To Montgomery County Food Bank

CONROE (July 27, 2016) – Montgomery County Food Bank (MCFB) was delighted to host

Silver Eagle Distributors and Bud Light Houston for Bud Light Gives Back to Montgomery

County on July 21, 2016.

This event hosted over 160 volunteers at Montgomery County Food Bank that sorted food,

learned more about the Food Bank and even won tickets to the Bud Light Party with Rod Ryan

from radio station 94.5 The Buzz. The generous time and support from the volunteers resulted

in 35,977 pounds of food, equaling approximately 21,600 meals ready for distribution to the food

insecure of Montgomery County.

 

“We all had an incredible time and thoroughly enjoyed serving with Silver Eagle Distributors,”

said Rodney Dickerson, President and CEO of Montgomery County Food Bank. “I hope we can

do this again in the future as our residents loved it! Thanks to the entire Silver Eagle Distributors

Team for making the event a huge success.”

After an hour and a half of sorting, volunteers enjoyed free food from three local food trucks,

cornhole games, raffles, and cold beverages from Silver Eagle Distributors, suppliers of Bud

Light at various establishments throughout Montgomery County. Photos and videos from the

event can be found on the MCFB Facebook page as well as the photo galleries on

MCFoodBank.org.

Created by a group of volunteers in 1985 to serve disadvantaged families in Montgomery

County, MCFB distributed nearly 8.1 million pounds of food which represents 6.75 million meals

in 2015 to those in need.

As the county has grown, so has the need for the MCFB’s assistance. At conception MCFB was

a door-to-door operation run out of car trunks. They now distribute more than 6.6 million meals

to more than 35,000 unduplicated low-income children, adults and seniors per year and works

with 52 partner agencies throughout the county from its warehouse off of Texas 242, north of

The Woodlands.
