The demand for food is evident in the Rio Grande Valley.

The Food Bank opened Thursday in Raymondville at the Willacy County Housing Authority. Volunteers and members of the Texas Army National Guard handed out thousands of pounds of food to Valley residents.

The Food Bank's next food distribution is next Tuesday in Pharr.

Due to the high demand, families will only be allowed to visit the Food Bank once every 30 days. An ID is required.

The Food Bank's normal pick-up schedule is every Tuesday from 9 to 11 a.m. or until capacity is reached. Emergency pantry services for seniors 60 and older are on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
