Brazos Valley Food Bank program delivers food to people in quarantine
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Since March, the Brazos Valley Food bank has been delivering food to those who have COVID-19 or need to isolate because they’ve come in contact with someone who has it.
They’re called Q-kits and are for people that are quarantined and become food insecure. The kits can feed a family for seven days. The food bank says with the recent spike in coronavirus cases in our community they’ve seen an increased in the need. On Monday, they delivered 17 which is the most since the program started.
“I really feel for the families who are dealing with both of these issues at the same time. I can’t imagine the stress that they’re under. So we’re very very grateful to be able to help them out at this time,” said Theresa Mangapora, the executive director of the Brazos Valley Food Bank.
Mangapora says the Brazos County Health District helps identify those that need Q-kits.
They’re provided by the Houston Food Bank and will continue to be delivered as long as our community needs it.
