Come wind, rain, or hurricane… we’ll be there.

As Hurricane Dolly sweeps through South Texas, in its path of destruction, lay the food insecure. For those new to food insecurity because of the hurricane, or already struggling to make ends meet, food banks are often the first line of defense after a natural disaster.
Texas food banks have a culture of helping each other out in times of crisis. And this hurricane, while no Katrina, or Rita, left the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley with little food and with demand pouring in like… well… a hurricane.
Today, one of our our 26 foot trucks heads to the valley with emergency food supplies and Stanley, one of our CAFB warehouse assistants. The Wheels of Sharing Mobile Food Pantry is on stand-by for Galveston or Port Arthur. Stay tuned for images from the road.
So here’s our PSA for the moment.
If you haven’t thought about emergency preparedness, now’s a great time to start. Check out our disaster preparedness web page so you know our commitment to you, and to learn how to best protect yourself and your loved ones.
Stay safe, Central Texas.
