Local Infant Formula for Emergencies (LIFE)/Houston is a local, non-profit agency whose mission is to provide families with infant formula through our "Food for Hungry Babies" program. Food for Hungry Babies has served over 100,000 families in the greater Houston area and we are the only agency solely dedicated to providing emergency formula to infants, birth to one year. We distribute 4,000-6,000 cans of formula to area infants on a yearly basis.
Food for Hungry Babies is low barrier--parents or caregivers need only photo identification of themselves and proof of the baby's birth. More important, thanks to the generosity of individuals, churches and corporations, families also receive other baby essentials that we have on hand.

"Times have been rough and it [is] always good to have someone lend you a hand. I've just had my baby 10 days ago and I'm going [through] some money issues, which I know will [be] temporary while I get back on my feet. I really appreciate LIFE/Houston for giving me a hand through these times. Now I know that someday I can give back as well. Thank you. You help is really appreciated.
