Hunger greater in Crossroads post-Harvey

Food Bank of the Golden Crescent warehouse aisles were full of extra donations after Hurricane Harvey in this 2017 photo.

Aero Crafters will donate 10 percent of all food truck sales Aug. 17 for the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent’s backpack program, according to a news release issued Monday.

The bar has 22 craft beers on tap and a gourmet food truck at 309 E. Crestwood. Hours on Friday are 4 p.m.-2 a.m.

The backpack program works with administrators, faculty and parent liaisons at schools to identify children who are likely to be struggling with hunger and food insecurity. The children are provided with food to take home for weekends and holidays.

Research indicates hunger plays a significant role in a child’s development by affecting their physical growth, brain development and cognitive functioning. But in the U.S., 1 in 6 children may not know where they will get their next meal.

Aero Crafters encourages those who cannot attend to donate at tfbgc.org.
