Food for Families Annual Food Drive

November 17, 2023

Food for Families

The annual Food for Families drive is scheduled for Friday, November 17, in Whitney and throughout the area. All November donations will be counted toward the Lake Whitney Food Bank goal of 65,000 pounds. The official campaign hours for the Food Bank to be accepting donations that Friday will be 7 AM – 7 PM.

Food for Families is a joint annual project of the Longhorn Council, Boy Scouts of America, H.E.B. Grocery Company and KWTX News 10. KWTX will be televising some of the donations here during the day. Donations stay in our community.

The food bank operates completely through donations and volunteers. No one is paid. All donations go directly to providing for those in need.

Any donation is appreciated. The food bank also needs donations for their Backpack program serving Whitney and Aquilla, where school children are given food on Fridays to take home for the weekend.
