A drive-thru food distribution event by the Central Texas Food Bank is set to take place Aug. 13 at the Smile Direct facility, 300 Vista Ridge Drive, Kyle.

At the event, the nonprofit will distribute free food from 8-11 a.m. to help residents who are facing food insecurity during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to a July 27 press release.

Residents who attend the event will receive one box of assorted produce, 1-2 gallons of milk, one protein box weighing between 8-20 pounds of chicken or pork products, and an emergency box of shelf-stable items depending on availability.

The food bank encourages residents to only attend the event if they are facing true food insecurity as supplies are limited.

In addition, the Central Texas Food Bank is looking for volunteers to assist in this and other food distribution events planned for August. To volunteer, click here.
