Brookshire Grocery and Kraft combine to help feed hungry East Texans
East Texas Food Bank is getting a big donation to help hungry East Texans.
Brookshire Grocery and Kraft Foods pledged one-point-two million pounds through its store donation program this year.
The program sends trucks directly to area grocery stores to pick up meat, dairy products, bread and other perishables.
The food is near its sell-by date but perfectly good to eat.
Brookshire's says without this program - much of this food would go to waste.
