|Eastside Seniors Volunteering at the Central Texas Food Bank|
22 Eastside Seniors spent Monday morning volunteering at the Central Texas Food Bank. They spent two and a half hours inspecting frozen meats and pre-prepared meals that are distributed to area families.
In that short time, the Panther seniors inspected 2435 lbs. of meat items, enough to
create 4308 meals for Central Texas families facing food insecurity.
