The “Comida” Food Drive began in December 1985 with HPD Officer Joe Dominguez ’s concern for the less fortunate Hispanic citizens of Houston. Dominguez put together what is today one of the largest food drives in the city of Houston. During the first year, approximately 600 families received a box of non-perishable food. Each box that was donated fed a family of four during the Christmas Holidays. The food drive now provides food for more than 3500 families in the city of Houston.
