The Central Texas Food Bank is seeing huge numbers of families coming to pantries needing food. With unemployment on the rise and school districts restricting food distribution to students only, families are looking for ways to stretch their limited dollars. This past weekend, it handed out more than 1,500 boxes of free food in three hours, which hundreds of cars lined up to receive.
The food bank still needs volunteers – maybe now more than ever – and has made provisions to keep them safe. Read here about how you can volunteer at the food bank or a food pantry.
