It’s no secret that there are many in our community in need of a helping hand right now. It’s been a year and a half harder than usual, and many Central Texans are experiencing food insecurity.
This includes local seniors, who do not always have the means to communicate their needs or find help.
This is where the Central Texas Food Bank comes in.

CTX Food Bank to distribute free food boxes to people aged 60 and over Thursday September 9. The boxes will weigh around 30 pounds and will include cheese, milk, canned food, cereal, rice / pasta, etc.
Where can the elderly get this food?
The event will take place at Church of Christ from the south side, 1505, chemin Trimmier in Killeen, of 10 a.m. to noon.
Convenience of drive-thru
The food distribution is designed as a drive-through event, so you or the person accompanying you can park, open the trunk or backseat, and let CTX Food Bank volunteers load your box of goods.
However, you will not be turned back if you arrive on foot, by bus or by bicycle. Keep in mind that the box they will give you will be heavy, so you will need a way to easily transport it around the house – a wagon or wheeled container, for example.
What if I can’t do it?
These distribution events aren’t the only way to get a helping hand from the Central Texas Food Bank.
There is also a Acquire help button to link to information on helping food aid programs like SNAP, helping children and the elderly, and even information on culinary training and organic gardening.
