Food Help for Those 60 and Over Coming to Killeen
Food help is on the way for those age 60+, with two food distribution events coming up.
The Central Texas Food Bank announced Monday that they've scheduled two food distribution events at Southside Church of Christ at 1505 Trimmier Road in Killeen from 10 AM to Noon on Thursday, August 12 and Thursday, September 9.
It's all part of the Food Bank’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), which provides each participating low-income senior age 60 or older with free monthly groceries.
Those attending will get 30 pound food boxes that include cheese, milk, canned goods, cereal, rice/pasta, and more.
There will be a drive through line for those arriving by vehicle and a separate line for those arriving by foot, by bus, or on a bicycle. It is recommended that those attending should bring a container that will be able to carry the box of food.
This event is designed for seniors 60+, and they'll need to provide identification that includes date of birth. They'll also need to meet certain income levels including:
· A limit of $1,396 per month for a household of 1
· A limit of $1,888 per month for a household of 2
