About Us

L.I.F.E. Houston has been filling bottles and feeding babies since 1988. Our Food For Babies program began with the combined efforts of Marion Knight and the leadership of St. John the Divine Episcopal Church.

Our Mission...

To provide emergency nourishment for hungry babies and provide education about proper infant nutrition to families in need. 

Agency Facts

L.I.F.E. Houston serves approximately 3500-4000 client visits each year. This means that we provide approximately 100,000 infant feedings each year.


In addition to infant formula & baby food, we also make sure that families know about other resources for their babies and for other members of the family. Every year, we host two client events - a baby shower in the summer and our infant holiday bash in December.


L.I.F.E. Houston is a low barrier organization, which means we require only a photo ID for parent or caregiver and proof of the infant’s name and birth date. On each visit, we give enough formula for 6 - 7 days and we give 6 visits for each baby that can be used until baby's 1st birthday.



At L.I.F.E. Houston, we can help families give their babies a strong start for a strong future. We help families support baby's healthy growth and development because...


  • ...caregivers that are able to provide consistent nutrition to their baby are less stressed and able to suppor their families better;

  • ...a baby's brain grows more in the first two years than during the rest of baby's life;

  • ...the effects of food insecurity in infancy can be seen at only 2 years of age;

  • ...when babies get appropriate nutrition in the first year, they have the foundation for a lifetime of physical and mental health.
