‘Share Your Christmas’ Food Drive Set for November 9th
Each year the Big Country comes together for Share Your Christmas, a food drive that benefits the Food Bank of West Central Texas.
Well, it’s time once again for this annual event.
We’re asking for your monetary and non-perishable food donations. With every $1 donation, the Food Bank can distribute 6.25 pounds of food, the equivalent of 5 meals!
- 31st Annual Share Your Christmas
Date & Time
- Wednesday, November 9th
- United Market Street on South 14th Street
- Drop off bins will be located at other local United Supermarket stores
Due to the economy, and an overall increase of 25 – 50% more people seeking assistance with food, our goal this year is 300,000 meals!
It is because of our wonderful, caring community that the agencies who serve those in need are able to feed so many. Nearly 4 million pounds of food was distributed in 2015.
Our 175 non-profit member agencies are seeing increases of 25% in requests for assistance, while some are seeing as much as a 50% increase. Food pantries are providing emergency food boxes to over 9,000 families each month, and our feeding programs serve over 110,000 meals each month.
The Food Bank is stretched to the limit, and needs everyone’s help to finish out the year.
