The East Texas Food Bank will hold a special Thanksgiving box and produce distribution on Wednesday at the East Texas State Fairgrounds in Tyler.
Distribution will be from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and is limited to one per household.
“We have a lot of volunteers that want to help for Thanksgiving, but we also have such a large meal gap,” said East Texas Food Bank Programs Director Tim Butler. “Being able to offer food to help feed families at this time of the year is a great opportunity for the East Texas Food Bank and our volunteers.”
Each household will receive a box with shelf-stable items such as peanut butter, beans, canned meats and cereal. Fresh produce and meats will also be provided.
No documentation is required to receive the items, but households will be asked to fill out a short form. according to the food bank. The items are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last, food bank officials said.
