WACO, TX — A food drive will take place tomorrow to help prepare the community for food pantry shortages.

Caritas Waco, Eastside Market and Keep Waco Loud will be partnering up to support a community Food Pantry Drive at Brotherwell Brewing on Sunday from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

The event organizers say "currently schools have canceled classes for the next two weeks and businesses could experience increased layoffs due to economic stress. This all puts an unexpected strain on certain families that will have to figure out how to provide their children and family members with extra meals. Our current food pantry resources are not adequately stocked to handle this sustained pressure."

Brotherwell Brewing will be accepting canned goods, peanut butter, rice, and toiletries for the food pantry.

"Let us rally as a community to help families that may be affected by recent events," the Facebook post said.
