The Highland Food Pantry
Becky Almanza and her team at the Highland Food Pantry creatively responded to the need for social distancing by transitioning to a drive-by format for our neighbors. Highland members served Abilene by pre-assembling bags of groceries for distribution, restocking the shelves with food, serving neighbors at their vehicles, and delivering food to the homes of neighbors 60 years and older.
Summer Meals Program
Many families in Abilene are facing a summer they never expected. According to Feeding America, more than 50 million Americans have filed for unemployment since mid-March, and families are suddenly worried about their next meal. Providing access to summer meals for families in low-income areas should be an important priority for all of us.
As part of the Restore Abilene Initiative, Highland will once again partner with the Abilene Hunger Coalition and 11 other agencies to provide “Curbside Grab and Go” meals to the approximately 33,200 children throughout our city who are food insecure.
