It is hard enough getting good healthy food on your plate. Imagine how much harder it would be if you were homeless.
On Friday, the Food Bank of Corpus Christi and the Metro Ministries' Loaves and Fishes Kitchen announced a partnership to get fresh food on the plates of those who utilize the services of the charity kitchen.
They call the program Fresh Focus, and the fresh fruits and vegetables will be offered twice a day at each of the 12,000 meals Loaves and Fishes serve each month.
"Our commitment is to better health, not just to feed people," said Bea Hanson, executive director of the Food Bank of Corpus Christi. "And this commitment to Loaves and Fishes is going to work out really well, because we need to move that food, and this is an outlet. We know it will be received and distributed as soon as possible, and fed to the families on the same day."
The Food Bank of Corpus Christi said they wouldn't be able to sustain this partnership without the help of the folks at Wal-Mart and HEB.
