CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — There's good news for food banks across the state, courtesy of H-E-B.

The grocery store chain is delivering twenty-four truckloads of food to thirteen different locations.

That includes our Coastal Bend Food Bank.

Tuesday, they received 28 pallets of frozen chickens and 12 pallets of bread.

It's a delivery they really needed.

Bea Hanson, the Executive Director of the Coastal Bend Food Bank, said, ""The food bank has been very low on food. We have been doing a lot of distributions. We are probably down to have 30 percent of our capacity, so any donation - such as this - will be very very helpful."

H-E-B's hunger relief program works year-round to help people in Texas and Mexico.

Last year, they donated twenty-five million meals to families in need
