One step closer to their goal.

The Brazos Valley Food Bank received $100,000 from HEB Wednesday to go towards their capital campaign.

The food bank has quickly outgrown it's current facility on Shiloh Avenue in Bryan.

The "Hunger Won't Wait" campaign is building support and collecting money from organization to help the food bank build a brand new facility. HEB has been partnering with the food bank for over 20 years and made this donation to help the community.

"We are very grateful to be able to operate in this area," says Danny Flores with HEB. "One of the huge pillars that HEB stands on is being able to give back to the community in the way of hunger relief efforts."

"It's an easy way for HEB to show how much they support us. To the food bank, it's just such a large, large donation that it's very humbling and very exciting," shares Teresa Mangapora with the Brazos Valley Food Bank.

Wednesday's donation puts the food bank's capital campaign 35 percent funded. They are looking to raise 2.6 million dollars.
