Congratulations Galveston County Food Bank
The Galveston County Food Bank dedicated its new 17,000-square foot warehouse Tuesday.
The facility, the food bank’s second warehouse, is located in a former office supply building in downtown Texas City. The original one a few blocks away is 12,000 square feet.
The opening of the warehouse, 217 6th Street, comes after the Food Bank provided more than 30,000 pounds of food for US Coast Guard members and other federal employees who were either furloughed or working without pay during the month-long federal government shutdown.
Officials said they are preparing just in case the government shuts down again.
Even before it opened the warehouse was put into use storing more than 200,000 pounds of disaster food. Those provisions were sent to flooding areas in central Texas, Rio Grande Valley and to South Carolina. ...
