Food Bank Sends 500 Disaster Boxes to Community of West, Texas

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The Food Bank of Corpus Christi sent out 500 disaster food boxes to the people of West, Texas, on Wednesday. The boxes were delivered to a staging warehouse in Waco.

Meanwhile, the Food Bank is still urging the community to vote and help them win a $45,000 grant from Wal-Mart. Voting runs through the end of April, and our local Food Bank is competing against food banks in cities like New York and larger communities in California.

In order for our local Food Bank to qualify for the grant, they have to get the top percentage of votes on Wal-Mart's Website. The funds will help them spread operations into surrounding Coastal Bend communities.
