Free Drive-Thru Produce Distribution Set for Tuesday in Lufkin
The Deep East Texas Resource Center, a program of the East Texas Food Bank, will be holding a mega drive-thru produce distribution in Lufkin at the George H. Henderson Jr., Expo Center on Tuesday, July 27. The distribution will take place from 10 a.m. until 12 noon, while supplies last. As with past distributions, the events are open to anyone and there are no eligibility or paperwork requirements. These are drive-thru distributions and walk-ups will not be accepted.
Multiple households can carpool. If someone is unable to attend a distribution, they may send a note with a friend or family member to pick up food for them. The note must include their name, signature, and a statement that the individual is permitted to pick up food for you. Any single car may not have more than three of these notes, so a maximum of four households can be served per vehicle.
If a family can’t attend the drive-thru distribution, they can visit the new food pantry at the Deep East Texas Resource Center at 105 Lofton Street in North Lufkin. The pantry is open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 3:30-5:30 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays, as well as 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays. More information is available at www.DETRC.org.
