The East Texas food bank is getting a big donation to help hungry East Texans.
Brookshire Grocery Company and Kraft Foods have pledge 1.2 million pounds through its store donation program every year.
The program sends trucks directly to area grocery stores to pick up meat, dairy products, bread and other perishables that are nearing their sell-by date.
Kraft foods is also investing $45,000 in the store donation program.
