Food bank feeds thousands

BEAUMONT - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News

Southeast Texans stopped by Our Mother of Mercy Catholic Church to receive canned good Wednesday.  

The church is one of the partner agencies for the Southeast Texas Food Bank, which supplies 12,000 homes with food each month.  

Executive Director of the food bank, Emelie Irving said, “A lot of times, they'll come pick up on the day of distribution that way they can just deliver to families that day.”  

It’s one of several programs the food bank operates to supply people with needed items. Letisia Mouton is just one of the benefactors.  

"When they need things, they're here to support them and help them with it," Mouton said.  

The mother of two went to the church to receive groceries. She filled out the necessary paperwork and waited while church workers prepared her box.  

 “I’m very grateful,” she said. “I’m blessed by God.”
