AUSTIN (KXAN) — A local faith-based organization set up a food pantry to serve the Austin community on Saturday.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul opened their pantry from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 901 W. Braker Lane for families facing a financial strain during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Their hope was for people to have a solid meal on Easter Sunday.
Volunteers and staff members wore gloves and masks as they handed out bags of food, which were distributed according to the number of people in a household.
The Vincentian Family Center is seeking the following donations to continue helping the community:
- nonperishable snacks
- nonperishable meals
- canned vegetables
