The Central Texas Food Bank, a local food relief nonprofit charity, on March 2 released information on food distribution events for local residents experiencing increased food insecurity due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and lingering effects from damage caused by Winter Storm Uri.
The first event starts March 4 at the Travis County Expo Center. Four other distribution events are planned through the end of March. Residents in need can pick up food at the following sites and times:
Saturday, March 13
Austin Community College Kyle, 1200 Kohlers Crossing, Kyle
Tuesday, March 16
Toney Burger Center, 3200 Jones Road, Austin
Thursday, March 18
Del Valle High School, 5201 Ross Road, Del Valle
Saturday, March 27
KIPP School South Campus, 5107 I-35, Austin
The Central Texas Food Bank asks that residents picking up food at these distribution events use their cars, though the charity said that no one in need of food will be turned away.
