The Kessler Theater’s sister in Houston expects to feed hundreds of first responders.

The Heights Theater, also owned by Edwin Cabaniss of Oak Cliff, is on high ground and has fared well following Hurricane Harvey.

The City of Houston asked them to open their commercial kitchen as an “official make-ready kitchen” for first responders

“We have no idea on the number of meals we’ll be serving, but we are preparing for thousands,” the Kessler stated in a media release.

The Kessler also launched a fundraising campaign to give a hand to service industry workers and entertainers affected by the disaster, starting with the theater’s own $5,000 donation. If you’d like to give something to help Houston-area bartenders and musicians who are out of work right now, find the campaign here.
