Patriots family members help out at Houston food bank

Local News

Houston, T.X. (WPRI) – While the Patriots are getting ready for the big game, former players and family members helped out at the Houston Food Bank Friday.

“I found out you can volunteer,” said Peri Solder, offensive tackle Nate Solder’s mother. “I went ‘oh, sign me up!'”

Thousands of meals were prepared by the team for local schools and organizations.

A $5,000 donation from the Patriot Organization also took the Houston Food Bank by surprise.

After volunteering, family members will turn their attention to the other reason why they are in Houston- to watch the dynasty in its seventh Super Bowl in the Brady-Belichick era.

“When you have a quarterback and a coach with that mindset, you know, they just stay together and keep rolling and keep going at it that it’s like a snowball effect,” said former Patriot Kevin Faulk. “You went downhill and you’re still going downhill to this day.”
