Food For Families is an annual project for the Boy Scouts of America, H.E.B. Grocery Company, Texas Army National Guard and KWTX – TV. Together with food pantries all across Central Texas, this one-day food drive collects non-perishable food and stocks the shelves of area food banks and pantries beyond the holiday season.
On the Friday before Thanksgiving, volunteers from the Boy Scouts, H.E.B. Grocery Company, Texas Army National Guard and other community organizations, collect food in 9 counties. Food For Families is the largest one-day food drive in Texas.
All donated food serves the people in the county in which it was collected. Central Texans have generously donated food and money totaling more than one million pounds each year for the past seven years. In 2012 alone, 1,453,065 pounds of food was collected.
Be a part of this tradition and help your fellow Central Texans. Please donate non-perishable food products that people need most.
Here are the totals from all 23 years.
