In response to the increased need for food assistance due to COVID-19, the East Texas Food Bank will hold drive-thru food box distributions on Friday, November 13th and Friday, December 11th, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Both events will take place in the Longview Exhibit Center parking lot located at the Gregg County Fairgrounds. Vehicles will need to enter the complex on Grand Blvd. off Cotton Street and follow the route and traffic control directions to receive a free food box.
The distribution is drive-thru only and walkups will not be accepted. There are no eligibility requirements or identification needed. Multiple households can ride together. To pick up a food box for someone else, a hand-written note from that person with their name, address, permission for you to pick up for them and their signature must be provided. The physical note or a picture of it will be accepted.
Any family seeking food assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic can visit www.EastTexasFoodBank.org and click “find food” to get information on the nearest food resources.
