Spirit of Christmas food drive

TYLER, TX - It's the season of giving and many East Texans are donating to make sure everyone has a meal. 

Brookshire's Grocery Co. is even making it easy for people to donate. 

It's their Spirit of Christmas food drive happening at Brookshire's, Super 1 Foods, and Fresh by Brookshire's. Just grab a bag valued at $5 ot $10 and throw it in your grocery cart. 

Inside are non-perishable food items for families. They will be delivered to the East Texas Food Bank, and from there they will be distributed to families in need.

Last year the goal was to serve 15,000 families. This year they upped the ante to 16,000 families. 

Customers can also choose to purchase a coupon for $5 instead. All of these proceeds will also go to the food bank. 

To top it all of Brookshire's Grocery Co. will also be donating 20,000 roasting hens to the food bank to go along with the other food being donated. 

This food drive ends December 22.
