Donation Will Feed Thousands Over The Holidays

Thousands of East Texans will enjoy home-cooked meals this holiday season thanks to a generous donation by Pilgrim's Pride.

The poultry company is donating more than 50- thousand pounds of chicken to The East Texas Food Bank. That will feed an estimated 40-thousand people during the holidays.

The East Texas Food Bank say chicken and other protein-rich foods are the least donated items, so this chicken helps them complete meals.

The East Texas Food Bank provides food to 26 counties and more than 200 member agencies.
