Food Distribution

Volunteers Mark Abernathy and Kevin Howe help distribute food March 12 to families during the East Texas Food Bank drive-thru food event at the Longview Fairgrounds.

The East Texas Food Bank has scheduled another drive-thru food distribution starting at 8 a.m. Friday at the Longview Fairgrounds.

Vehicles will need to enter from 300 W. Cotton St. and follow the route and traffic control directions.

The distribution is drive-thru only, according to food bank officials.

There are no eligibility requirements or identification needed, and multiple households can ride together.

To pick up food boxes for someone else, a hand-written note from that person with name, address, permission for you to make the pickup and the person’s signature must be provided, according to food bank officials. The note or a photo of it will be accepted.
