Got food? Need food? This website connects Hurricane Harvey victims, volunteer cooks

It’s been more than a week since Hurricane Harvey plummeted the coast and floods swept through Houston and other parts of East Texas, and the relief efforts are only getting started.

Over the weekend, I spotted a website that connects people in the food community who want to donate hot/prepared food or unprepared food to people who are in need, no matter if they are evacuees in a shelter or volunteers trying to clean up Rockport.

The website is simple: ihavefoodineedfood.com. There, you can fill out a form to donate food or receive it.

I’m not sure who is connecting the donors with the recipients, but it’s a good tool to know about if you’re considering making a donation of your own.

Note that the site requests food prepared in commercial kitchens or from licensed caterers, which is an effort to reduce food safety risks from distributing food prepared in unregulated kitchens.
