On Friday, the White Settlement Senior Center held their monthly food bank. The food bank is held on the second Friday of the month with help from the Tarrant Area Food Bank and the Senior Center Services of Tarrant County. The Center selects and purchases the food that will be available at the food bank at a reduced price from the Tarrant Area Food Bank, then volunteers go pick it up. A team of volunteers helps unload the truck and set up the food on tables in the Center. Volunteers also staff each table, helping load up the seniors with food as they make their way through the line. With many seniors living on a fixed income, the food bank helps them keep food in the pantry. Seniors looking to participate in the food bank need to eat lunch at least four times a month at the Center, including eating lunch the day the food bank is held.
