The East Texas Food Bank has been distributing food boxes to families and individuals in need all over their 26 county service area. They have been there for many families in their time of need. The East Texas Food Bank is having a drive-thru produce distribution in Lufkin at the Expo Center. This event will be all about produce and fresh items. Tuesday September 29th, 2020 from 10am - 12noon.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak there has been a bigger need than normal. April was a huge month for food distribution. With so many closures and layoffs many families income has suffered. Lack of funds leads to hunger very quickly. The East Texas Food Bank is here to serve that need.

The food boxes are full of nutritious fresh produce and other fresh items. They will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Healthy food and distributed freely. They don't ask for paperwork, just a verbal deceleration of income. You can even pick up a food box for a sick friend with a signed note from them. They have removed these barriers and are providing the one thing that everyone needs. It really makes a difference in so many lives in our area.

This is a great organization, that does amazing things for families and seniors right here in East Texas. If you would like to help them with these food distributions they are always welcoming to new volunteers. CLICK HERE. They are also a great place to do any kind of community service. State mandated or not.
