Food Bank officials say they also need volunteers to help administer the events and stock items at its warehouse. Those who’d like to volunteer can fill out an application at the Food Bank’s website.
Prior to the event, people are asked to make appropriate space in their trunks or hatches for a food box. Attendees will receive an assortment of food based on what’s available.
Derrick Chubbs, Central Texas Food Bank CEO, told KXAN’s Nabil Remadna that they need donations now more than ever due to skyrocketing demand and increased spending to purchase food in lieu of donations.
Those interested in donating to the Food Bank can do so on its website.
