Supplies Low at Huntsville Food Bank

HUNTSVILLE, Texas A Huntsville-area food bank says they're running low on their hottest commodity, and they need help to keep going.

The Good Shepherd Food Bank has been in Huntsville for more than two decades. These days, officials said, they feed thousands of people in the area each month.

"Our food bank serves about 600 households every month," said Dave Smith, Executive Director at the food bank. "That's just for our food bank. We also serve over 2,200 hot meals every month."

Smith said this is a busy time of year, and supplies of food are running low.

Jewel Dean Smith is a senior citizen and a Huntsville native. She said even when she can afford to buy food on her modest budget, health issues sometimes prevent her from preparing it. She said she's thankful for the food bank's help.

"I'm on low income, my bills are heavy," said Smith. "The food bank is a blessing to me. Not only me, but so many other people that have to depend on the mission for food."

Smith said said the community has always stepped up when they've needed them. He just hopes that help comes soon.
