“One in six Texans live in food insecure homes, including one in four Texas children,” said Danny Flores, H-E-B Public Affairs Manager. “As the largest food retailer in the state, it is our dedicated mission to give back to communities in need and do our part to make sure no family goes hungry this holiday season.”
