RGV Food Bank - Grand Opening -

After nearly 30 years, 
the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley, 
which began as a food pantry in 1983, 
will be back in its hometown again.

 If you follow Ruby on facebook you know what is coming up this week. It's great news for the whole valley!! The Food Bank will be and has been remodeling the Valley Fruit Company for the past several weeks and getting ready for years to move the northern center to this more centralized location in Pharr, Texas.

So excited to see everything that is planned for this huge location. If you have no plans in the mid-week, feel free to stop by during their grand opening. I will be there checking it out, so say hi if you see me! I was thinking of throwing an idea their way.... if you saw the past few weeks of that popular couponing show on TLC, they did some shopper to shopper competitions, but donated all the food they good to their local food bank. I think it would be awesome to do the same thing here to celebrate the opening of the new location. If anyone at the RGV Food Bank thinks its a good idea let me know. I probably wouldn't participate because I'm going on 4 month with this baby, but would love to organize and see how we can do this, maybe make it a annual tradition. What do you think?

Check out the local newspaper website for more information HERE. Like them on Facebook and say I sent ya to see all of the pics I know they will be sharing and you can also see some pics from the past few months.
