Food Bank RGV is asking for the community's help in supporting families and individuals in need this winter and into the new year.
In response to the growing need for assistance in the community, the Food Bank RGV reports that its warehouse shelves are becoming bare. With 275 partner agencies across the Rio Grande Valley, the Food Bank RGV provides food and resources to those at risk of hunger.
"As the need for food assistance continues to grow, we are seeing a strain on our resources. Monetary donations are crucial in helping us purchase the food needed to fill our shelves, as well as covering rising transportation costs,” said Libby A. Saenz, chief executive officer of the Food Bank RGV. “We are grateful for the support of our community and urge those who are able to give, to consider making a donation to our food bank."
Food Bank RGV is in dire need of donations to continue to support the community. The food bank is seeking donations of canned food and monetary donations to provide meals and resources to those who need it most. Every donation, no matter how small, makes a difference. The Food Bank RGV reports that every dollar helps provide up to five complete meals for an individual in need. To make a donation, please visit foodbankrgv.com or drop off canned goods at the food bank, located at 724 N. Cage Blvd. in Pharr.
