FarmFest at Food Bank on Saturday, April 13

We are glad to celebrate the heritage of farming and good nutrition with a special community event on Saturday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In conjunction with Lamar University’s Big Event which sends volunteers into the community to show Lamar’s support for a variety of initiatives, we will hold a produce and milk giveaway, as well as educational engagements to highlight the benefits of farming in our culture.

Dial 2-1-1 for free, bilingual information and referrals for food assistance and other health and human services.

The mission of the Texas WIC (Women, Infants & Children) program is to improve the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.

Did you know that a $10 donation can help provide up to 40 meals for desperate people in your community? Rest assured, that every penny of your donation will be stretched to it’s maximum effect. 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!
