Don’t Miss “Bun B Day” In Houston This Thursday

Port Arthur’s own Bun B is celebrating the anniversary of “Bun B Day” in Houston this Labor Day weekend.   Bun B will be celebrating with a special food drive for the Houston Food Bank on Thursday (August 30) from 4-7 p.m. at the Food Bank’s headquarters.

If your in the area, Bun B will have a meet and greet with fans and thank them for making donations of non-perishable food items and money to help feed the less fortunate of Houston.  Bun sat down with AllHipHop.com and spoke on the event saying, To be honored with my own day by Mayor Parker and the Council is something I don’t take lightly.  It is my hope that the day becomes synonymous with honor, good will, and helping one’s fellow-man.  Partnering with the Houston Food Bank is the first step.  Join us in our effort to begin a new tradition of unity in the human community on August 30!”

Bun B’s event is kicks off on the foot heels of  the start of Hunger Action Month.  Which is basically a push by food banks and hunger relief agencies across the country, with the aim of getting celebrities, school children and other members of society to help fight hunger in their community.

In Houston, the theme this years is actually pretty cool.  It’s “Hunger Bites, Bites Back.”  The meaning behind the slogan stems from the fact that one, hunger is a bad thing; two, that it has a painful, biting effect on those who suffer from it; and that we as citizens can all “bite back,” by taking action to help those in need.

Believe it or not, the Houston Food Bank is the nation’s largest sized Feeding America food bank and source of food for hunger relief charities in the 18 southeast Texas counties.  So, it’s gi-normous!

The H-Town Food Bank is so well managed and put together that they have been named one of 10 Top-Notch Charities across the nation by Charity Navigator.  The Houston Food Bank has been recognized for maintaining a network of nearly 500 food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies, feeding a total of 137,000 people each week.

The Houston Food Bank also provides more than 50 million nutritious meals annually.  Hows that for doing their part in ending hunger?  So again, if your in the area and want to help as volunteers, the Houston Food Bank has asked that all photos be Tweeted and information about the event hashtagged using #BunBHFB.
