BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Thanksgiving came early for thousands of people in the Rio Grande Valley at H-E-B’s 27th Annual Feast of Sharing. Hundreds of of volunteers served up free meals to about 10,000 people in Brownsville. The Jacob Brown Auditorium at Texas Southmost College was filled as H-E-B handed out free Thanksgiving meals with all the fixings.
Those in attendance were even treated to live Mariachi music.
Yvonne Loflin, H-E-B Public Affairs, “Every year we like to kick off the holiday season with a beautiful Feast of Sharing. Giving back to our loyal customers who truly support us all year round. This is our way of saying thank you and then for anyone that doesn’t have a family here and they need a hot meal to enjoy the holiday season we’re here to serve them.”
The H-E-B Feast of Sharing was started back in 1989. The annual holiday feast includes more than 250,000 meals served during 33 events held throughout Texas. Several other Rio Grande Valley communities will have their feast of sharing celebrations in the coming weeks.
