    Twenty-six Wisconsin cheese companies are donating 17,000 pounds of "comfort food" to Houston's largest food bank, said Suzanne Fanning, vice president of the state’s Milk Marketing Board, NBC affiliate WMTV first reported.

    "It's a very small thing for us to do with what they're facing," she told the station. "But let's face it: cheese is comfort food. It makes you happy. If we can bring a little bit of happiness to the folks down there then that's what we want to do."

    The shipment, which will include everything from string cheese to cheese curds, as well as 300 pounds of butter, is expected to arrive in Houston on Thursday, according to WMTV.

    After making landfall in Texas, the storm caused major damage to more than 13,000 mobile and multi-family homes in the county.
