Kyle City Council Member Robert Rizo helped lead the Kyle effort, enlisting the help of volunteers to help deliver the food to hundreds of cars that lined a parking lot.
“It was a great event,” Rizo said at the June 2 City Council meeting. “During COVID-19, many families have lost their jobs. We need to help those families out. We really helped a lot of people.”
Council Member Tracy Sheel said it was amazing to see the organization of the food bank and volunteers.
“The number of cars that were there in the first part of the morning, unfortunately, saddened my heart,” Sheel said. “I hope we get past this.”
Families received boxes of dried food, vegetables, frozen chicken and 2-3 gallons of milk. The next Central Texas Food Bank event in Kyle is set for 9 a.m.-noon June 18 at Smile Direct Facility, 300 Vista Ridge Drive.
