Winter Weather Having Impact On Food Distribution

Today marks the second consecutive food distribution Catholic Charities had to cancel due to weather.

On a normal Wednesday, these distributions serve over 200 people.

Although weather conditions have not yet impacted the organization’s food supply, the closures prevented them from picking up some of the free items they get from the High Plains Food Bank.

Another organization that had to close for days is Amarillo’s Meals on Wheels.

A few weeks ago, they delivered two sets of what they call “snow bags” filled with non-perishable food to all their 330 clients.

The snow and road conditions also kept High Plains Food Bank closed today.

With the exception of yesterday, the food bank says pick-ups and deliveries were not affected.
