Fifth Annual Valentines for Veterans
The event combines local beer, local food and caring Houstonians to craft Valentines and raise money for those who have served the country. Valentines for Soldiers started in 2010, when friends gathered to make valentines and care packages for deployed soldiers. Food blogger Nishta Mehra, aka Blue Jean Gourmet, organized the event. She has since rallied food truck owners, professional bakers, food writers and photographers to this cause each year. This year, Valentine's for Veterans partners with Expedition Balance, a Houston-area organization that supports combat veterans facing emotional trauma.
This event includes a bake sale featuring sweet and savory items from some of Houston's best pastry chefs and home bakers. Craft tables will be set up so that you can get creative and make valentines to send to veterans.
Food trucks Blood Brothers BBQ and Taco Nuts will be outside in the parking lot ready to feed hungry guests.
