Texas Department Of Agriculture Cuts Food Bank Grant Nearly 44 Percent

 Food banks across Texas are getting hit with a nearly $2 million cut to their budgets this year. The cuts come from an order from Texas Governor Greg Abbott to trim all agency budgets this year by five-percent.

The cut is specifically to one grant: the Surplus Agricultural Product Grant. That Texas state grant makes it possible for local food banks like the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank to get fresh and local produce, something they especially need as they continue to serve more people in the community.
