DALLAS – Texas-based Hardie’s Fresh Foods employees took to the streets of Houston this week to support fellow Texans who had to evacuate as a result of Hurricane Harvey. They were among the first to respond by providing 3 truckloads of food to the American Red Cross for evacuees at the George R. Brown Convention Center, local hospitals, hotels, and to first-responders – many of whom were personally impacted by flooding.

“We’re humbled to serve people impacted by these storms and full of pride for our team and others throughout the state who braved the roads to get to the Hardie’s warehouse, hospitals, and major hotels to help wherever was needed,” said Brian Preiss, General Manager at Hardie’s Fresh Foods, Houston. 

Dallas-based Hardie’s Fresh Foods employees also stepped in to support their fellow Texans by driving truckloads of fresh food down to the Houston area. Donation boxes in all of their locations continue to fill quickly, and is an example of the heart of people all over the state and across the country who are ready to lend a helping hand during this devastating time. 

“I’m really proud of how our Houston team came together for the care and compassion of the people in Houston,” said Mark Austin, CEO of Hardie’s Fresh Foods. “It’s humbling to learn of the hardships that some of our employees have experienced, and yet people showed up to ensure that others who were even worse off had something to eat.” 

Hardie’s Fresh Foods encourages companies and individuals to get involved by supporting Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, whether through monetary donation, volunteering at a local shelter or warehouse, or providing supplies. Resources and information on how to support can be found at the American Red Cross and Trusted World websites.
