Serving the Community in Challenging TimesH-E-B plays a unique role in shaping its business operations around the food and supply needs of Texans, especially in response to natural disasters. In February 2020, before the federal government officially acknowledged the pandemic, San Antonio-based grocery chain HEB was already running pandemic simulations based on a natural disaster business plan they began developing in 2005, with the threat of the H5N1 influenza. The plan helped them respond to the H1N1 outbreak in 2009. In 2017, H-E-B used the plan to guide recovery efforts on the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Harvey.

Join us December 9th for a conversation with Scott McClelland, president of H-E-B Food/Drug, on the company’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion will be moderated by Evan Smith, CEO of The Texas Tribune.
