Donation builds on H-E-B’s commitment to support vulnerable Texans impacted by COVID-19 

Continuing the charge of Texans helping Texans, H-E-B will deliver 75,000 fresh chef-inspired meals to hospitals in the Rio Grande Valley and across Texas to feed our healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. 

Each week for the next five weeks, H-E-B will deliver Meal Simple meals to doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers engaged directly with COVID-19 patients as well as those working in emergency rooms across the Rio Grande Valley. The microwaveable meals are ready to eat in under two minutes, making them an easy, convenient solution for busy healthcare workers on the frontlines.

“We’re all extremely grateful for the dedication of our healthcare workers who are saving lives and making personal sacrifices for others,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs. “We want to express some well-deserved appreciation and hope these meals will provide a bit of comfort during these trying times.”

This meal donation, which is worth more than $350,000, comes on the heels of H-E-B’s $3 million commitment to help local nonprofits that are providing relief to some of our most vulnerable neighbors: seniors, children and low-income families. As part of this charitable investment, H-E-B has donated: 

More than $1.2 million and nearly 40 truckloads of food and household supplies to food banks, which will provide more than 6.5 million meals for Texans in need;

$1 million to support grass-roots nonprofits; 

$500,000 to organizations dedicated to mobilized home feeding services for seniors and low-income families, such as Meals on Wheels; and 

$300,000 to assist Texas Biomedical Research Institute, a San Antonio-based organization with a team dedicated to coronavirus research.

H-E-B also is running the Texans Helping Texans checkstand donation campaign in all its stores across the state, giving customers the opportunity to support several organizations providing essential services, such as United Way, Meals on Wheels and Feeding Texas.

“Whether it’s in our stores or in the more than 300 communities we serve, H-E-B is here to stand by and help all Texans,” said Linda Tovar, Senior Manager of Public Affairs Border Region. “We are in this as a community and it’s important to support one another during this time of need.” Together, we can slow the spread in Texas.
