Hunger Awareness Day

Today is national hunger awareness day and the East Texas Food Bank is trying to get East Texans to realize how persistent a problem hunger is here.

For thousands of East Texas families, having enough food to eat is a daily struggle. They depend on charity programs like the East Texas Food Bank to feed their families. Which is why today, the food bank set up this display at the Tyler Mall, to help raise awareness and to encourage you to help find a solution to hunger in our area.

Thanks to the food bank and 200 partner agencies, people in 26 counties can get food when they need it. They provide more than 6 million meals every year to people in need.
