On Wednesday donors and sponsors helped us raise tens of thousands of dollars and thousands of pounds of food for the Brazos Valley Food Bank and its affiliated food pantries in Washington, Burleson, Madison, Grimes, Robertson, and Grimes Counties.
Call for Help in Hearne is open every Monday afternoon, providing hungry families with the nutritious food they need. But as life gradually returns to normal in the face of a pandemic, the number of people needing help is on the rise.
The Franklin Food Pantry in Robertson County is working to end hunger and food insecurity this holiday season. The Franklin Food Pantry is just one of the local nonprofits participating in KBTX's Food for Families Food Drive.
The holidays are a time when family and friends come together. As the family of KBTX prepares for the holidays, we invite you and your family to join us Wednesday, December 4th at the Brazos Center in Bryan for the 24th annual Food for Families Food Drive.
It's been six years in the making for the Brazos Valley Food Bank's newest facility, and in the final day of October, the change was finally made.
But the work is far from over as the food bank prepares for one of its biggest events of the year.
