The Keegan Center

The Keegan Center was built by End Hunger Network and is now part of the Houston Food Bank - the largest source of free and low-cost food for hungry people in 18 southeast Texas counties.

Tilt-Up construction was used for the 15,000-square-foot building built just north of downtown Houston. On the side of the facility fronting Interstate 45, the words ‘End Hunger’ are depicted in red corrugated sheet metal, and the exterior of the building is painted to resemble a folded tablecloth, which creates a unique appearance.

Tilt-Up methods were used because they provide a secure and durable structure, which enables the Houston Food Bank to continue operations in the event of severe weather. The convenient location provides easy highway access for the people in the greater Houston area who donate their time to serve those in need.
