BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -KBTX is now in day two of our Summer Hunger Food Drive. Today you can donate food for the drive at Douglass Automotive.

Typically this food drive is held in the fall, but the food drive is taking place in the summer because hunger doesn’t take a vacation,” according to Theresa Mangapora with the Brazos Valley Food Bank. “There’s a lot of families that have extra stress on their finances in the summer.”

Mangapora said the food they are most in need of is mac n’ cheese as this is shelf stable, kids like it and its a starch. She said they are always in need of canned fruits and vegetables as well.

If you don’t have time to stop by Douglass Automotive today, you can donate food tomorrow at Brookshire Brothers or donate money online by clicking here.
