This warning about Recruiting Scams that look like they came from the Food Bank. This is posted on their “Careers” page and it states, “Please be aware of job applicant scams. See more details about how to protect yourself.”.
The Houston Food Bank has recently become aware that criminals are using its name, branding, and false but realistic looking websites/emails in employment recruiting scams.

The Houston Food Bank accepts no responsibility for any payments incurred as a result of this fraudulent activity.
The Houston Food Bank Never:
