Meeting physical needs locally
The East Texas Food Bank teams with various nonprofits such as Colonial Hills Baptist Church to provide food to clients in need throughout the 26-county service area. Our Food Pantry Team places an order from a weekly shopping list of available products through the Agency Express System. Volunteers pick up the food at the East Texas Food Bank in Tyler. After stocking our shelves we directly provide the food to individuals and families on the First Monday and Thursday of each month.
