CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Coastal Bend Food Bank spent the day in Flour Bluff distributing 500 boxes of fresh produce to those in need.

Folks lined up in their cars at the VFW Post 8932. And this time, veterans got to get in line first!

Members of the post tell us they were happy to give the food bank a place to distribute the food.and were surprised with the turnout.

“This was our first time doing this and we really didn't know how many people were going to show up today,” said Abel Garcia, commander of VFW Post 8932. “Which is good, which is great and to all of our volunteers out here, I mean they are doing a great job.”

If you missed today's event, the Food Bank will be holding another produce giveaway tomorrow at 902 Navitagtion Cir. in Rockport beginning at 10 a.m.
