Food and Funds Needed Now

 

Food Bank of the Golden Crescent

UHV’s Gamma Beta Phi in conjunction with the Golden Crescent Food Bank, is having a food and fund drive. The drive is in full swing and they need your help. In these tough economic times they are seeing an unprecedented number of people seeking food assistance, some for the very first time. Now more than ever the services are needed to ensure that those being negatively affected by the economic downturn and high food prices have access to the healthy food they need to feed themselves and their families. They are working hard to meet the rise in requests for their services and need the help of the community to achieve their mission.
Most Needed Foods
The Food Bank needs nutritious, non-perishable foods:
Meals in a can (stew, chili, soup)
Canned Meat
Peanut butter
Canned foods with pop-top lids
Low sugar cereals
100% fruit juices in single serving boxes
Canned fruit packed in juice
Canned vegetables (low salt)

Today, FBGC is the support system for more than 90 agencies in a 9,963 square mile service area which includes eleven counties: Calhoun, Colorado, DeWitt, Goliad, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca, Matagorda, Refugio, Wharton, and Victoria. In 2011 the Food Bank distributed over 3.2 million pounds of food and related products to agencies participating in the food distribution program. These agencies report providing nearly 250,000 meals in 2011 through soup kitchens, emergency food boxes, church pantries, or senior citizens programs. Presently FBGC is serving 1000 children in the Kids Back Pack Program. FBGC operates Mobile Food Pantries to reach rural communities where there are no agencies to serve at-risk populations. Gamma Beta Phi has three FBGC barrels on its UHV campus: one at Jaguar Hall, one at University Center, and one at University West. THIS EVENT WILL RUN THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER to support families in need for the holidays
