Free food distribution set here Saturday
Boys & Girls Clubs of Texas have partnered with Save the Children and are helping to get food to families.
The Boys & Girls Club of Vernon will be taking part by inviting families and individuals from Wilbarger County to attend a drive-up distribution featuring free fresh food boxes as part of the Farmers to Families program.
This Saturday, Feb. 6, from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. a drive up distribution of a free box packed with fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, milk and dairy products will be given out.
The distribution point will be the auditorium parking lot across from the local club.
More than 25,000 food boxes are being distributed weekly at a variety of community pick-up points in rural communities across Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
Distributions will continue through Oct. 31, with the potential for continuation based on a program extension authorized by USDA.
