PHARR, Texas – With September being Hunger Action Month, H-E-B is stepping in with a big donation to the Food Bank of the RGV. This morning an H-E-B trailer loaded with boxes of cereal made its way to the food bank.
Officials with the food bank say Hunger Action Month is a great opportunity for people, families and businesses to learn about hunger here in the Valley. And also learn how to give back. Adding H-E-B has been a champion partner in helping fight food insecurity in the Rio Grande Valley.
Omar Rodriguez, “Cereal you may not think as a very important part of your diet but it’s actually full of vitamins and nutrients. You want to start the day off right with a bowl of cereal. We’re really happy for this donation and we want to thank H-E-B for all their help.”
The Food Bank of the RGV says they plan on distributing the cereal right away to needy families experiencing food insecurity.
