Members of the Texas Army National Guard work the East Texas Food Bank drive-thru emergency food distribution at the East Texas Fairgrounds in Tyler on Friday, April 24, 2020. In response to COVID-19, 34 Texas Army National Guardsmen have been deployed to the East Texas Food Bank to ensure that the agency can continue to safely meet the need for food assistance in its 26-county coverage area. The deployment comes after the Smith County Emergency Operations Center submitted a STAR request for the guardsmen to support ETFB with its production, distribution and transportation tasks through May.
