Over a four day period in August, the Gulf Coast was rocked by a Category 4 storm system—irrevocably changing the lives of millions of Americans. An estimated 15 trillion gallons of rain fell on the City of Houston leading to catastrophic flooding and billions of dollars in damages. In the harrowing days that followed, members of Houston’s energy industry jumped into action to help those in need.

As tens of thousands of Houstonians faced uncertain futures in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Hess took care of the first hurdle – feeding their community.

Working around the clock, Hess’ Randy Fournier and his team of professional chefs prepared and distributed more than 11,000 meals to their neighbors impacted by the storm.

Randy and the Hess team felt the need to act because a warm meal is the first step to “bringing families back together safe and secure.”
