UT Health East Texas is conducting a virtual food drive benefiting the East Texas Food Bank.

The goal is to raise $15,000 through caregiver donations during the month of October. Every $1 raised provides up to eight meals. UT Health has partnered with the East Texas Food Bank in previous food drives. For the past nine years, UT Health East Texas Olympic Centers have hosted donation barrels at their locations across East Texas during the month of November. Last year, the drive collected 26 barrels of food.
