BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The holidays are a time when family and friends come together to celebrate, but for some families it’s a time that highlights their needs. As KBTX prepares for the holidays, we invite you and your family to join us Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the Brazos Center in Bryan for the 26th Annual Food For Families Food Drive.

This day of giving works to alleviate hunger in the Brazos Valley by stocking food banks around the area. Shop any of your local grocery stores using the list below as a guide to help you support this incredible effort that benefits the mobile pantry operated by the Brazos Valley Food Bank. BVFB works to eliminate hunger by distributing food and grocery products through a network of nonprofit organizations while also providing education and community awareness on issues of hunger

This year KBTX has expanded the number of drop sites. You can drop canned goods, non-perishable items and monetary donations at the following locations:
