BROWNSVILLE, TX — At H-E-B, the holiday season is a time to bring friends, families and neighbors together and give special thanks to customers for their continued support. On Wednesday, 10,000 Brownsville residents are expected to join in on the holiday tradition festivities at the Jacob Brown Auditorium during the 21st Annual H-E-B Feast of Sharing Dinner.
Hundreds of H-E-B volunteers from the area will be on hand to serve a feast to 10,000 Brownsville community members. The menu will include turkey with gravy and cranberry sauce, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, a vegetable medley and dessert. There will also be live music, entertainment and activities for the whole family throughout the day.
