Food = Life: Holiday Can Food Drive

Since millions of people die each year of hunger, the National Museum of Funeral History is partnering with Houston Community Newspapers to take a stand and join the fight against hunger. In the spirit of the holidays, give back to the community and give life to those in need by bringing a can food item(s) to the museum. During November and December, visitors to the National Museum of Funeral History will receive $2 off admission with a non-perishable can good donation, benefiting the Houston Food Bank.
