Feed the Hungry
Today is the Brazos Valley Food Bank’s annual Feast of Caring. I hope it is a big success and encourage everyone to attend and give. If you cannot go, please make a contribution when you next consider your charitable giving for 2018. In a community such as ours that appears to be so prosperous, you wouldn’t think that food insecurity is a big problem, but looks are deceiving. The food Bank serves thousands of people in the Brazos Valley and is a very good steward of all that it receives.
There were 44, 640 food insecure people in Brazos County, a rate of about 21.3 percent, in 2016.
The need is particularly high in the summer months because children who are provided food at school are at home.
Please be generous.
