In response to the increased need for food assistance due to COVID-19, the East Texas Food Bank will hold a drive-thru produce distribution in Longview at the Gregg County Fairgrounds at the Longview Convention Complex on Friday, Aug. 28, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Families will need to enter from 300 W. Cotton St. and follow the route and traffic control directions to receive the free produce items.

The distribution is drive-thru only and walkups will not be accepted. There are no eligibility requirements or identification needed. Multiple households can ride together. To pick up produce for someone else, a hand-written note from that person with their name, address, permission for you to pick up for them and their signature must be provided. The physical note or a picture of it will be accepted.
