The Central Texas Food Bank hosted food distribution events to families facing food insecurity due to work stoppages during the coronavirus outbreak. Many residents were unemployed during the pandemic as businesses closed due to physical distancing measures aimed at containing the spread of disease. As a result, countless residents have experienced financial emergencies that have resulted in food insecurity and prompted the Central Texas Food Bank to launch a series of sales events.
