Washington, DC, September 02, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Witt O’Brien’s, a leader in crisis and emergency management, and its parent company SEACOR are sending 100,000 nutritious meals from The Outreach Program to the East Texas Food Bank for distribution to children and families affected by Hurricane Harvey.

“When disasters hit, children are among the most vulnerable,” said Tim Whipple, Witt O’Brien’s CEO. “We know from experience how important it is to deliver nutritious food to kids in the immediate aftermath. We’re already contributing to Harvey relief through our specialist response and recovery services. We’re delighted to team with SEACOR and The Outreach Program to help feed kids in need.”

“Outreach is honored to collaborate with Witt O’Brien’s and SEACOR to provide meals for our friends in Texas,” said Floyd Hammer, founder of The Outreach Program. “Victims of the disaster need nutritious food to assist them in their recovery and our meals are formulated by Iowa State University Food Science Department to meet those needs.”
