NOLANVILLE — Mary Faye McDonald, director of the Nolanville Food Pantry, and her staff made it a special holiday season for over 100 families by distributing food items prior to Christmas Day.
The free giveaways included canned vegetables in addition to turkeys and hams.

After the holiday rush, the greatest need for the pantry are donations of canned vegetables such as peas and pork and beans in addition to rice, and peanut butter. McDonakl said, “Any monetary donations or items are extremely appreciated right now.”
The Nolanville pantry continues to order items from the food bank in Austin which is a major supplier for smaller food pantries across Central Texas.
