Harvest Texarkana asks for food donations

Local food banks gear up for the holidays.
Local food banks gear up for the holidays, but one in the Twin Cities is running low on supply.

Harvest Texarkana helps feed families in northeast Texas and southwest Arkansas.

But this year, demand has been very high.

Officials say food donations disappear as quickly as they come in.

They're asking for the public to help make sure everyone has a meal this holiday season.

"Canned goods, pasta dinners, those are things that are really staple items for us during the winter months, any financial or any kind of help will absolutely make a difference," said Executive Director Camille Parker.

On average, Harvest Texarkana distributes about 175,000 pounds of food.

So far in November, almost 230,000 pounds have been given out to those in need.

"You know giving is a blessing," says volunteer Linda Mack. "When you give God gives back to you. and In the Bible it tells you that the poor will always be among us, so we need to give as much as we can."
