Edinburg, Texas (KVEO)—The city of Edinburg announced during a press conference on Tuesday, they will be distributing non-perishable food on Wednesday.

The drive-through distribution will take place at the Edinburg Activity Center, located at 123 E Palm Dr. in Edinburg at 10 a.m.

People must show proof of residency within Edinburg City limits.

“On top of the destruction in Edinburg caused by Hurricane Hanna, we’re also still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Edinburg Mayor Richard Molina. “We want to help our residents who are in need of food but we also want to make sure it’s happening as safely as possible.  We have our city staff manning the distribution and putting bags of food right in your trunk so residents don’t have to get out of their cars or have any contact.” 

During a press conference held on Tuesday, officials with the city mentioned they continue to see a lot of issues with debris management, as a result of Hurricane Hanna.

The city has waived the fee for all residential individuals to take to landfill free of charge for this week. The city will also have curbside pickup starting next week.
