HARLINGEN, Texas (ValleyCentral) — The Rio Grande Valley is kicking off the holiday season at the annual H-E-B Feast of Sharing celebration.

Over 4,000 guests were welcomed with a Texas style holiday meal at the Harlingen Convention Center.

“It’s just great to see that our community is coming together to share a meal during the holiday season,” Audrey Trevino Guerra, H-E-B Public Affairs Specialist said.

H-E-B Feast of Sharing has served more than 340,000 meals each holiday season for over 30 years, serving in 34 cities throughout Texas and Mexico.

The H-E-B pharmacy team also provided free flu shots.
