Meet Houston Missions: Braes Interfaith Ministries (Food Pantry)

Episode 7 of Meet Houston Missions features Ryan Kreipe, the Manager of Braes Interfaith Resale Store & IT Director for Braes Interfaith Ministries.  Braes Interfaith Ministries serves the needs of the southwest side of Houston providing food and clothing for less fortunate people as well as clothing for people transitioning from prison back to the workforce. They operate a food pantry at Willow Meadows Baptist Church as well as a Resale Shop on Post Oak which serves two purposes: clothing people in need and providing income to support the mission.

Braes Interfaith Ministries was started by the Southwest Ministry Alliance over 35 years ago and is supported by 14 area churches and synagogues. It is in the Braeswood neighborhood of Houston.

Donations Needed

Braes Interfaith Ministries regularly needs donations of clothing, household goods, and monetary donations to support efforts to help people recover from disaster, fire, or loss. Monetary donations are always needed to support the mission as well.  They also accept donations at the Resale shop of household goods and clothes that can be sold.  For every $1.00 of profit, Braes Interfaith Ministries generates, they are able to purchase $27.00 worth of food from the Houston Food Bank which the ministry then distributes through the food pantry.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are always needed to sort, stock, unload, and/or deliver food and clothing between the food pantry, Houston Food Bank, and the resale shop.  To learn more about these opportunities, please visit the Braes Interfaith Ministries website at or visit the resale shop website at  You may also call Ryan at the shop at 713-723-3841 to coordinate a time to volunteer.
