North Texas Food Bank will be returning to Sulphur Springs this Saturday for those in need of food assistance. The Mobile Food Pantry will offer food in a drive-through only format from 9 to 11 a.m. June 13 at Hopkins County Civic Center, 1200 Houston St.
There is no need to register for the mobile pantry pick up; it is first come, first served. In order to receive food, the recipient must arrive in a vehicle to pick up food.
Mobile Pantry participants are required to give their name, share their family size, and meet income requirements to receive food. No proof is necessary, the process is a self-declaration, according to North Texas Food Bank.
The Food Bank on April 5 partnered with Texas National Guard to create at least 60,000 family meal boxes weekly to be distributed by bank partners and through the Mobile Pantry program. This is designed to help Texas residents who need food assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
