HEB's annual hunger-relief program, Feast of Sharing, will kick off in Midland, Texas today. The grocer will host 28 Feast of Sharing dinners in 22 Texas cities, along with six "Posadas" or holiday feasts in Mexico. Volunteers will prepare and serve more than 250,000 hot meals, mostly prepared in the company's own mobile kitchen.
The grocer will serve 1,000 pounds of turkey breast, 45 gallons of gravy and 4,000 slices of pumpkin pie tomorrow in Midland. HEB gave out Thanksgiving meals on Wednesday to be delivered by Meals on Wheels for Midlanders who cannot attend Friday's dinner. More than 5,000 guests are expected at this first feast of the year on HEB's schedule.
Started in Laredo and Corpus Christi, Texas in 1988, the Feast of Sharing program brings together hundreds of HEB partners and community volunteers each year to serve a nutritious holiday meal with entertainment to thousands of individuals in communities across Texas and Mexico. The holiday meals are scheduled throughout the months of November and December at convention or community centers.
