Feeding the Hungry through a Feast of Caring

By  | 

The Brazos Valley Food Bank is serving up free food and hoping to do away with hunger in the process.

The 14th annual Feast of Caring is back, offering a modest meal of beans, rice and sausage to benefit the food bank.

"It's a way for the community to connect with the food bank and the food bank to connect to the community, so they can be reminded of our mission, but at the same time it's a great way for us to raise some money so we can continue to keep our shelves stocked," Theresa Mangapora, with the Brazos Valley Food Bank said.

Groups, organizations and individuals are asked to pull up a chair, and help out those in need in the Brazos Valley.

"It's a fun event," Mangapora said "I mean you're going to see people you know dining there but you're also going to see people you know or want to meet serving food. It's going to be anything but like going to the restaurant, it's a real social event, and it's for a good cause."

Donations are encouraged.

To join in on the feast, head over to the Brazos Center at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
