A Beautiful Day for Food Day

On Saturday, October 17, the Food Bank hosted its first annual Make a Difference with Food Day on what turned out to be a delightful fall day. This event linked us to the national recognition of Food Day, a celebration of the goodness of food and the importance of food as a community resource. We are delighted that our event was successful and well received by the guests.

The day featured some cooking demonstrations by a local chef to teach nutritious eating with a limited set of ingredients, some yoga instruction for improved fitness, and 18 interactive displays to offer guests exposure to a variety of helpful services such as health providers, senior services, SNAP enrollment, and diabetes prevention and management education.

Guests who interacted with at least a handful of exhibitors qualified for a free bag of fresh produce.

We appreciate all the volunteers, exhibitors, and guests who came out to help Make a Difference with Food!

Did you know that a $10 donation can provide up to 30 meals for desperate people in your community? By making a donation, you are helping to ensure that hungry children in Southeast Texas are adequately nourished, that none of our senior citizens are forced to chose between medicine and food, and that every family facing a crisis can at least have the assurance of food on the table.

Your gift goes a long, long way!
