We have sent over 100,000 pounds of rice and dried beans to the poor and hungry in Haiti, Mexico, and the United States. This equals over 800,000 meals. We provide bulk rice and beans to volunteers groups, who package it into quart bags. We then deliver the food to those who need it. Volunteers are also welcome to help distribute the food personally to Houston area food pantries and Mexico. To learn more about planning a trip to Mexico, click here.
What is the cost for your group to do a rice and beans packaging?
We ask for 50 cents per pound.
How much man power does it require?
Of course, it varies according to your group, but on average it takes ten people about four hours to package 1,000 pounds (500 rice and 500 beans). The amount your group packages can be tailored to fit the size of your group and the amount of money you have to give.
How does it work?
Everything your group needs is located at our facility. Just schedule a time to volunteer with us. When you arrive, the rice, beans, quart-size bags and commercial heat sealers are here and ready for you to use.

In Haiti, an important part of our effort to help make Kenbe Fem, our orphanage, self-sustaining is farming. We have started with crops and livestock on the Kenbe Fem property.

Grinding corn that was harvested at Kenbe Fem.
Good morning! Remember all of that beautiful corn that had been harvested from Kenbe Fem's property that we posted a picture of a few days ago? The corn will be used in different forms to feed the kids. Here is one of the ways... They will take this corn "milk" and add more milk and make a porridge.Posted by Builders Without Borders of Texas, Inc. on Thursday, June 4, 2015
