Truckloads of H-E-B Select Ingredients Quick Oats oatmeal delivered to 17 Texas food banks
(SAN ANTONIO, TX) – In an ongoing commitment to battle hunger, H-E-B will give the gift of Food this holiday season with special truckload deliveries of H-E-B Select Ingredients Quick Oats oatmeal to 17 Texas food banks this week.
“One in six Texans struggle to avoid hunger, including one in four Texas children,” said Danny Flores,
H-E-B Senior Manager of Public Affairs. “As the largest food retailer in the state, it is our mission to give back to communities in need and make every effort to ensure families don’t go hungry this holiday season.”
Throughout the state, H-E-B trucks will deliver enough oatmeal to provide 2.9 million meals to Texas families. Through H-E-B’s Food Bank Assistance Program, these donations will benefit 17 food banks affiliated with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization.
The H-E-B Food Bank Assistance Program works throughout the year to raise awareness and battle hunger. Founded in 1982, the program is nationally recognized for the financial donations and monthly food deliveries it makes to food banks in Texas and Mexico.
The H-E-B Select Ingredients Quick Oats oatmeal is a good source of fiber and a great addition to a heart-healthy diet. Delicious and nutritious, oatmeal provides quality calories, providing the energy families need to jumpstart their mornings. As an H-E-B Select Ingredients product, the oatmeal is among hundreds of H-E-B items that don’t include artificial ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, and partially hydrogenated oils.
