Food Bank Friday, is an online fundraising event that will help the SETX Food Bank provide meals, in 8 counties, to those less fortunate. Making a commitment to think about the hungry each Friday and support the mission of the Food Bank with a weekly or monthly gift can have a big impact on hunger in Southeast Texas.
A $10 donation can provide about 40 meals. That is a great blessing for our community because about 1 in 4 residents of Southeast Texas lack sufficient food to assure themselves access to three nutritious meals a day.
The poverty level in SETX is higher than the state-wide average of 18 percent and the national averages of 16 percent. With your help we can fund the fight to end hunger!
