Austin American-Statesman Sunday - - COMMUNITY NEWS - — AMER­I­CAN-STATES­MAN STAFF

The Hays County Com­mis­sion­ers Court pro­claimed Septem­ber as Hunger Ac­tion Month and is seek­ing mon­e­tary and food do­na­tions for the Hays County Food Bank.

The food bank has dis­trib­uted more than 700,000 pounds of food via its seven public food dis­tri­bu­tions through­out the county and mul­ti­ple part­ner agen­cies and to stu­dents through its back­pack pro­gram. It also provided a tra­di­tional hol­i­day meal for more than 6,000 in­di­vid­u­als.

“A $25 do­na­tion can pro­vide 100 meals through the buy­ing power of the food bank, and $30 pro­vides a fam­ily with a turkey and tra­di­tional sides for a hol­i­day meal,” said Precinct 2 Com­mis­sioner Mark Jones, vice pres­i­dent of the food bank’s board of di­rec­tors. For more in­for­ma­tion and to make a do­na­tion: haysfood­bank.org.
