Harvest Regional Food Bank is doing it again. They will be distributing 500 emergency food boxes to New Boston-area residents on Wednesday, May 27 beginning at 9AM at T&P Trail Head Park Pavilion located at 200 S Ellis St, New Boston, TX.
The Distribution run until 12PM or until all boxes have all been distributed. According to a press release, Recipients are directed to enter the Festival Grounds Entrance from the SE Front St. Distribution is limited to one box per household and 2 households per vehicle.
Camille Coker Wrinkle, the CEO/Executive Director of Harvest Regional Food Bank stated,
With the recent rise in hunger, it’s more important than ever that Harvest meet the needs of our food-insecure families where they are. Our goal is to continue making sure families have the food they need, even during this challenging time.
With CDC precautions and recommendations against the Coronavirus still in place, Harvest is taking every measure to ensure the safety of its staff, volunteers and recipients. Mobile pantries are now operating as “drive-thru” distributions, with food boxes being loaded directly into vehicles. Recipients will not be allowed to exit the vehicle or park to pick up food.

Last year, Harvest distributed 3.2M meals and served over 60,000 individuals in Southwest Arkansas and Northeast Texas. Both states consistently rank in the top 10 for the highest incidents of hunger. Nearly 20% of our local residents miss meals due to food insecurity, including 1 in 4 children. Harvest works to eliminate hunger through its Food Banking, Food Rescue, School Backpack and Mobile Pantry programs.
