FAQs: (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: Will I need to bring drinks?
A: Only dinner is required, but drinks (e.g. sodas, ice tea, juice) are a bonus!
Q: Do I need to provide plates/napkins/utensils?
A: No tableware is needed.
Q: How many people exactly are we feeding?
A: Because the number of families staying at FBFP fluctuates we will not have an exact count until 1-2 weeks before meal delivery. We will send people who sign up an email as soon as we know!
Q: Are there any food allergies/dietary restrictions?
A: Possibly. If so, we will be informed 1-2 weeks before meal delivery when we know more details about the families.
Q: Is there any way to heat the meals on-site?
A: FBFP does not have any ovens or other ways to heat the food. We recommend trying to deliver the food ready to serve. Meals are delivered to the Fort Bend Family Promise Center in Rosenberg.

A: Yes! Just send it to the address provided when you sign up.
