Mt. Pleasant, TX (KTAL/KMSS) – Harvest Regional Food Bank is giving away emergency food boxes to the community at the one-day drive-thru pantry.

The food drive started at 8:00 a.m. this morning and wrapped up at noon. No specific documentation was needed to receive a box. There was a limit of one per household.
Executive Director Camille Wrinkle said Harvest saw a rise in the need for a mobile pantry distribution over the entire ten-county area.
“Feel so fortunate and lucky that we’re able to provide this service and be able to come into communities like New Boston and other communities throughout the ten-county area and provide hunger relief. You know that’s what we’re here for.”
Harvest gave away a total of 1,500 boxes of food. The Executive Director said Harvest will host at least one drive-thru pantry a week over the next few months.
