8th Annual CBS-42 KEYE Food Drive

Nothing beats collaboration to help end hunger. This time, local media and business team up and encourage the community to give.

Yesterday, we kicked off the 8th Annual CBS-42 KEYE Food & Fund Drive with our friends, Chris with CBS-42 KEYE and Connie with Randalls.

We’ll be on our “tour” of Randalls stores every day of the drive (through Sunday, July 27 ) going live on air mornings, 5 p.m., and 6 p.m.

Friday morning, Fred Cantu and Liz Dannheim will broadcast their morning show live from the Randalls at Research & Braker. Come out and say hi!

Choose how you’d like to participate in this year’s drive:

  • Go to any area Randalls grocery store. At the register, tear off a $1 or $5 scan coupon and hand it to the cashier. The donation will be added to your final grocery bill.
  • Or buy a pre-packaged bag of the Food Bank’s most-needed items. Look for bags in the front of each Randalls.
  • Or drop off non-perishable food items. Check for specially-marked barrels in each Randalls store.
  • Or donate online on the Food Bank website.

BIG thanks to CBS-42 KEYE and Randalls for 8 years of enthusiasm and committment to this drive.

Liz Dannheim with CBS-42 talks to Otis Jackson, a volunteer with Bastrop County Food Pantry for a Food Drive story. Jackson said it costs $125 to fill the gas tank on their van, and that cuts into their food budget.
