CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — September is Hunger Action Month, and H-E-B made it a little easier Wednesday for the Coastal Bend Food Bank to meet the needs of the community.

The grocery store chain, which is celebrating 90 years in Corpus Christi, donated two truckloads of food and $1 million in support of the food bank's campaign for a new building.
