The Cactus Jack Foundation and Mayor Sylvester Turner partner once again to bring much needed assistance to Houston’s vulnerable communities and individuals in need. The City of Houston and the Houston Health Foundation partnered with Travis Scott and his Cactus Jack Foundation to launch an emergency food program providing 50,000 hot meals to Houstonians still recovering from freezing temperatures and days without water or electricity as a result of the 2021 Texas winter freeze.
The City of Houston and Cactus Jack Foundation will coordinate with local agencies and organizations, including The Black Service Chamber, The National Association of Christian Churches (NACC) and restaurant owners to identify vulnerable Houstonians in need of assistance who meet the following qualifications: live in one of thirty (30) high-priority ZIP codes identified by the City of Houston and are senior citizens, high-risk and/or homebound adults, people with disabilities, families with children under the age of 18, low income, or unemployed.
The applicable high-priority ZIP codes previously identified by Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Health Equity Response (H.E.R.) Task Force in Spring 2020 based on CDC social vulnerability data include: 77003, 77004, 77009, 77011, 77012, 77016, 77020, 77021, 77022, 77026, 77028, 77029, 77033, 77036, 77040, 77045, 77051, 77053, 77060, 77071, 77072, 77074, 77076, 77078, 77081, 77087, 77088, 77091, 77093, and 77099.
