souper bowl of caring

Join West University Elementary School in helping The Houston Food Bank!

West University Elementary School (WUES) is participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring from January 27 – 31 collecting canned goods for the Houston Food Bank.

The Houston Food Bank feeds 800,000 individuals in 18 counties around the Houston area and West U is proud to support their efforts every year! Last year, WUES donated 46,639 pounds of food (the most of any school in the nation!), which equates to 54,767 meals for children, families, and senior citizens.

Want to help, but don’t have any students at West University Elementary? You can drop off canned goods in the food bins at one of the following West U locations:

Location 1
West University Place Recreation Center
4210 Bellaire Blvd.

Monday – Friday:
7 am – 7 pm

5 am – 9 pm
7 am – 7 pm
8 am – 7 pm


Location 2
West University Place City Hall
3800 University Blvd.

Monday – Friday:

7:30 am – 5:30 pm


The most needed items from the Food Bank are protein items (tuna fish, peanut butter). Please remember NO GLASS jars or individual serving pouches.

Thank you for doing your part to help tackle hunger in the Houston metro area.
