Food for Families Food Drive Kicks Off Today

Updated: Monday, July 7 2014, 01:59 PM CDT

Today kicks off KEYE TV's Food for Families food drive in partnership with Randalls and Capital Area Food Bank.

Summer is a critical time for food pantry donations. More families face hunger now than any other time of year because utility costs are typically higher, food prices continue to rise, and school is out, so kids are not receiving free or reduced-price meals. Hunger affects more than one in six Central Texans and nearly one in four Central Texas children. And the face of hunger may surprise you: it includes working people, military families, seniors and children.

So KEYE TV, the Capital Area Food Bank, and Randalls are making it easy to give back with our annual "Food for Families" food drive. From now until July 18th, all participating Central Texas Randalls have prepackaged bags filled with high-protein foods including rice, beans, peanut butter, canned tuna and salmon, healthy cereals, and water. Grab them at the entrance for $10, purchase them at checkout, and place in the barrels as you exit. Shoppers can also do a monetary donation at the register or even buy individual non-perishable food items.
