H-E-B donating 500,000 meals to Texas food banks

“During these trying times, H-E-B is here for Texas."

SAN ANTONIO — To help communities impacted by the coronavirus, H-E-B is helping Texans by donating meals to multiple food banks across the state, including the San Antonio Food Bank.

In total, H-E-B will deliver 24 truckloads of food to various food-banks throughout Texas. This donation will provide half a million meals to 13 different food banks.

"With this gift, H-E-B is working in tandem with Texas food banks to provide relief to some of our most vulnerable neighbors: children, seniors and low-income families," the company says.

This isn't the first time the company has donated to those in need; last year, the program donated 32 million pounds of food to families, approximately 25 million meals. 

“We are grateful to H-E-B for its support. Together we will ensure no Texan goes hungry during this public health crisis,” said Celia Cole, Feeding Texas CEO.
