Brian Greene is President of Houston Food Bank, the largest food distribution bank in the nation. Greene, who once headed the New Orleans food bank, arrived in Houston on the tailwinds of 2005's Hurricane Katrina when his own Crescent City home flooded with water – only to be pummeled by Hurricane Harvey in 2017, where the first floor of his Houston home took on three feet of storm water.

We'll discuss how food recovery operations in Houston and New Orleans compared to each other as well as how he managed to keep both his personal home and family needs in check while addressing major food distribution efforts during Harvey.
