Fellow Texan, this is important.

Your fellow neighbors need your help. The coronavirus outbreak has impacted Texans across the state, but I know we can get through this together.

One way you can give back is through food banks. Needs have doubled in some areas, but it’s also gotten difficult for a lot of Texans to donate.

If you’re able to help your fellow neighbors, or if you and your family need help, visit feedingtexas.org/GET-HELP/ today.

I’ve been focused on making sure Texas food banks have the resources they need, and yesterday I was able to give back by volunteering my time. I joined volunteers at a San Antonio Food Bank distribution site to help those in need.

Like other nonprofit organizations throughout Texas, we took precautionary measures while serving our neighbors to ensure all involved stayed safe.

On an average week, the San Antonio Food Bank serves 58,000 meals – but since the coronavirus outbreak, that’s doubled to more than 120,000 a week.

Fellow Texan, I know we’ll get through this thanks to generous Texans who are coming together to support their neighbors showing the true Texas spirit.

For Texas,

John Cornyn
