The Food Bank RGV is coordinating disaster relief efforts
with Hidalgo County and other regional organizations to
bring food to families affected by recent flooding.
More than 600 bags containing
assorted canned and
packaged food items have
been made and/or delivered
to flood victims in and
around the Edinburg area.
The bags average 40
pounds and are supplemented
with bottled water. The
mesh bags were donated by
various produce companies.
The effort will continue
as needed but in the meantime,
volunteers and monetary
donations are needed
to keep up with the demand.
In past emergencies, the Food Bank RGV has doubled and
quadrupled the amount of food distributed in order to feed
populations affected by flooding and storms, often surpassing
millions of pounds.
