Houston Food Bank celebrates Houston Day

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Shout out to the 713! July 13 is Houston Day. Houston Food Bank and many Houstonians celebrated the day by giving back.

This city deep in the heart of Texas goes by many names. Whether you call it the Bayou City, Space City, H-town, HTX, Clutch City or another nickname, there's much to be proud of.

From rodeos and restaurants to Beyonce and Bun B, Houston is by far the best and most charitable city in all of Texas. Houston is home to the largest food bank in the country with volunteers as devoted as Hakeem Olajuwon during the NBA Finals.

Many celebrated all the great things about the Bayou City while giving back to our own community with the Houston Food Bank's 713 Houston Day. This special event consisted of a volunteer shift followed by a social hour featuring local artists, DJs, slabs, drinks, food trucks and more.
