Harvest Texarkana Will Help Over 1000 Families In One-day Distribution July 16
This Friday, July 16, Harvest Regional Food Bank will distribute emergency food boxes to at least 1,000 food-insecure families from the Texarkana area. The distribution will start at 8 AM at First Baptist Church Texarkana, 3015 Moores Ln, Texarkana, TX.
The funding for the event is being provided by Operation Jerusalem of First Baptist Church Texarkana, a special fund FBC has set up and dedicated to supporting local community projects.
The distribution will last until approximately 12 noon or until all boxes have been distributed. Those in need are directed to enter from the Moores Lane entrance right next to the soccer fields. Remember, this is limited to one per household and two households maximum per vehicle.
“With the continued increase in need for hunger relief, it’s more important than ever that Harvest continue meeting the needs of our food-insecure neighbors where they are,” says Camille Coker Wrinkle, CEO/Executive Director. “We are so fortunate to have the support of First Baptist Church Texarkana, and their Operation Jerusalem fund, helping us make sure families have the food they need as they recover from this challenging time.”
Harvest is continuing to take COVID-related safety measures and as such this will be a drive-through event, food boxes will be loaded directly into vehicles. Recipients will not be allowed to exit the vehicle or park to pick up food.
