The Deep East Texas Resource Center, a program of the East Texas Food Bank, will be back in Lufkin to continue its mission to fight hunger and feed hope. The next free drive-thru food distribution will come just in time for the Thanksgiving holidays.

They will be at the George H Henderson Expo Center located at 1200 Ellen Trout Drive in Lufkin Tuesday, November 23rd from 10 am - 12 pm. The food will be freely given, while supplies last.

There is no paperwork and the event is open to everyone. You can even pick up food for a friend or a family member with a note. The note must have their signature, printed name, and a statement that you are permitted to pick up food for them.
