Kyle to host emergency food distribution Saturday

Staff Report

KYLE — The Central Texas Food Bank is partnering with the City of Kyle in hosting a food distribution event on Saturday, Feb. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lehman High School.

The Central Texas Food Bank will also be holding a food distribution at Del Valle High School, in Del Valle, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20 that Kyle residents can attend if they are unable attend the Kyle one.

Central Texas residents facing food insecurity can drive to the events to receive a box of assorted produce, milk, and a protein box. Actual contents may vary depending on availability. All are welcome and no registration is required.

In response to the public health crisis, Central Texas Food Bank distributions have been converted to a drive-thru model and volunteers place food into each vehicle’s trunk. The food bank is asking that each household only send one person to the event, and that all attendees come in vehicles — there will be no walk-up distribution — to adhere to social distancing requirements.

Drivers will need to enter the Lehman High School Parking lot at the second entrance on Lehman Road (if heading East). Drivers will be directed to exit out of the same entrance.
