Feast of Sharing continues despite pandemic


Drive-through planned for West Texans

MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – For years H-E-B and the West Texas Food Bank have come together to host the Feast of Sharing and despite this pandemic, they are still finding a way to spread Christmas cheer.

“It has been a strange year, it has been for everyone. I keep talking about it doesn’t matter who you are, how much money you have, you have been affected by this,” said Craig Stoker with the West Texas Food Bank.

According to Stoker, it won’t be like years past where the community gathers for a holiday meal; instead, people will come in cars to get their pre-packaged holiday meal courtesy of H-E-B.

“It’s that time of year where families are trying to celebrate in their own ways and give to each other, give to neighbors, it’s that time of year where we all start thinking about each other,” he said.

The holiday distribution will take place at the Greater Ideal Baptist Church in Midland from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, December 18th. As long as people are in line by 3 p.m. they will receive a holiday meal for their family.

“This will be part of distributing over 19,000 of the meals, simple meals, that H-E-B prepares. You don’t need to bring anything, you don’t need to show an ID we just want you to come out and get a holiday meal that you can share with your family or your friends,” said Stoker.

If you aren’t able to make it to the event on Friday to head to their website to find information on their mobile distribution, there you can find other times they give out food.
