Amarillo’s Tyson Foods is once again stepping up to help out hurting families in the Panhandle. According to Feed America in Texas, 4,295,240 people are struggling with hunger - and of them 1,598,940 are children. People facing hunger in Texas are estimated to report needing$1,920,819,000.00.

Charitable programs are unable to fully support those families struggling with hunger. Locally Tyson Foods has been at the forefront to help feed hungry families in Amarillo and beyond. Tyson Foods has arranged another food box giveaway for those in need Sunday February 28 at the Bethesda Outreach, 1101 Fritch Highway from 5PM to 6:30PM. If you're struggling with food insecurity, please bring your ID and get your food box while supplies last

There are some guidelines. You must be present to receive a food box. Due to limited supply and high demand, no one will be able to serve as a pickup for a friend or family member who is unable to attend.

High Plains Food Bank, in partnership with Bethesda Outreach and Tyson Foods, will distribute food boxes to alleviate hunger and strengthen our communities. Recipients will receive a 16-pound food box that includes 4 pounds of dry goods, 6 pounds of protein, and 6 pounds of produce.

To keep staff, volunteers, and the community safe, distribution will be done via a drive-through. Visitors will remain in their vehicles, and volunteers will observe social distancing and wear masks and gloves.

Please remember food boxes are on a first come first served basis. There is a limit of one food box per vehicle. If you are suffering from food insecurity you can contact the High Plains Food Bank at 806-374-8562.
