Texas Border Business

PHARR, TX – The Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley recently received a generous $10,000 donation from Texas Gas Service, a Division of ONE Gas, to help support the Food Bank RGV’s operations and on-going response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This gift will enable the Food Bank RGV to provide up to 50,000 healthy and nutritious meals for families in the Rio Grande Valley during this critical time.  

“Texas Gas Service is a vital partner in Food Bank RGV’s mission to fight hunger. Their long history of giving towards our efforts is responsible for thousands of residents in our community receiving life-sustaining meals to aid their challenge of food insecurity, “said Stuart Haniff, Food Bank RGV CEO. 

This contribution is even more essential now, due to the increased need for food assistance among Valley residents struggling with the health and financial crisis of the Coronavirus.  The Food Bank RGV has experienced a 233% increase in the amount of clients served since the beginning of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Donations received have sustained the Food Bank RGV efforts to continue reinforcing their partner agencies across the Rio Grande Valley with food for clients. To provide additional aid to the community, the Food Bank RGV has also added “pop up” mobile produce distributions throughout our various communities and food deserts, an on-site Drive-thru Emergency Pantry (DTEP) for the general public on Wednesdays from 7am -10am, or until capacity is reached.

For more information about the Food Bank RGV, please visit www.foodbankrgv.com or call 956-682-8101.
