The organization is hosting another drive-thru food distribution event. It recently held one at LBJ High School and today's is at Del Valle High School.

Organizers are also requesting that only one member from each household attend the pickup. They also ask that only those with true food insecurity should attend as supplies are limited.

Each box will contain about 28 pounds of non-perishable items and the items will differ slightly, depending on what's available, but could include peanut butter, canned tuna or chicken, brown rice and canned fruit.
