City of Temple and Temple ISD Distributing Food in Five Neighborhoods Monday Afternoon
The City of Temple and Temple ISD are teaming up to distribute food and water at five neighborhood locations Monday afternoon.
In a news release issued late Monday morning, City of Temple Public Relations Coordinator Cody Weems announced that cases of water and bags of food will be distributed at the following locations beginning at 12:30 PM:
- Grace Temple Ministries, 801 S. 13th St.

- Central County Services, 322 S. 22nd St.

"Food and water distribution is intended for families and individuals who reside in these neighborhoods and are unable to travel to other pickup locations," Weems wrote. "Resources will be distributed by TISD school buses."
So, if you live in those neighborhoods and are experiencing food and water insecurity, you're welcome to stop by and take a care package. If you are not in immediate need of these supplies, please do not take resources from those in need right now.

The City of Killeen began distributing MREs and bottled water at the Killeen Community Center late Monday morning. Supplies were expected to go fast. Meanwhile, they are still operating water filling stations for those in need. You'll need to take your own containers to be filled, and water should be boiled before consumption.
