Jefferson County 4-H recently collected more than 3,500 pounds of food during its October food drive. Valued at more than $5,000 that food will mean almost 3,000 meals for the needy.

 

The organizations hosted a food drive at HEB in Beaumont and Market Basket in Nederland. The 4-H programs offers experiences to both urban and rural youth by providing the opportunity to participate in community 4-H Clubs. The food drive was conducted in conjunction with “One Day 4-H,” a program aimed at creating a better community. The program was created in 2009.

 

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.
