Food Bank sets 5 free distributions
The Central Texas Food Bank has announced five free food distribution events for this month.
Distributions will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday at the Travis County Expo Center, 7311 Decker Lane, Austin; from 9 a.m. to noon March 13 at Austin Community College Kyle, 1200 Kohlers Crossing; from 9 a.m. to noon March 16 at the Toney Burger Center, 3200 Jones Road, Austin; from 9 a.m. to noon March 18 at Del Valle High School, 5201 Ross Road; and from 9 a.m. to noon March 27 at the KIPP School – South Campus, 5107 Interstate 35, Austin.
At these special food distributions, the Central Texas Food Bank will distribute free food to help those who are facing increased food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic and in the aftermath of the winter storms. Attendees will receive an assortment of food items that will vary, depending on available supplies. While these food distributions are primarily designed as drive-through events, no one in need of food will be turned away.
Recipients who are driving through are requested to make appropriate space in their trunk or hatch. Those arriving via public transportation or on foot should look for the designated walk-up area.
Volunteers are encouraged.
