Hurd, Cornyn, Cruz Support Texas Food Banks; Send Letter to USDA

This week, Representative Will Hurd (TX-23) along with U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz sent a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Sonny Perdue urging the USDA to assist with administrative and logistical costs associated with excess food donations to food banks.

“More than four million fellow Texans do not know where their next meal will come from and food banks play a critical role in providing nutritious meals across South and West Texas, especially in rural areas. We must make sure that all the food donated to food banks can be processed and allocated effectively so that these children, families and seniors do not go without,” said Hurd.

“I appreciate the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank, which serves over 90,000 families across three counties of the 23rd District of Texas for bringing this issue to my attention, and I will continue to do all that I can to better the lives of South and West Texans.”

The issue of food banks not having the resources to fully utilize increased donations was presented to Cornyn and Hurd while volunteering at the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank in early October.

Full text of the letter can be found here.
