KERRVILLE, Texas — Unemployment has not discriminated due to population size.
Northwest of San Antonio, in Kerr County, more families are looking for resources to meet their needs.
A food pantry in Kerrville is hoping to help hundreds of families in need.
“It’s people helping people, neighbors helping neighbors,” said Beth Palmer, the Outreach Coordinator for Kerrville United Methodist Church and Light on the Hill.
The ministry hosted their first mass food distribution Monday. Volunteers from several Kerrville churches and groups lent a hand.
“We don’t want anyone to be hungry in this time,” said Palmer.
Usually, the group provides 12,000 pounds of food per month to the community, but they received almost 64,000 pounds of food from the San Antonio Food Bank to feed even more families.
