TEXAS (KXXV) -

Feeding Texas is serving alongside state and federal relief efforts for the expected impact of Hurricane Harvey on the Texas coast. 

"When a disaster is too much for one food bank to handle, Feeding Texas steps in to coordinate with the state and other providers so that relief reaches family quickly and the 'second disaster' of an unorganized response is avoided," said the organization in a release Friday. 

Coastal food banks are preparing to respond immediately in the aftermath of Harvey by "providing donation, coordination, direct distribution through partner agencies." 

Once a disaster area is declared, Texans will be able to have access to "D-Snap" that will provide food relief through EBT debit cards. 

To help, find the closest food bank and volunteer and donate after the disaster. If you want to donate food, food banks will need ready-to-eat staples like powdered milk, cereal, canned fruit, fruit cups, peanut butter and jelly, cleaning supplies and more.
