Tommy    Tommy was taking care of business at City Hall during his lunch hour when he noticed a lot of activity in the parking lot.
    “I wondered what was going on, then they told me about the free produce,” he said.
    Tommy was given a bag full of lettuce, tomatoes and potatoes as part of the East Texas Food Bank’s Fresh Produce Program. The food bank distributes nearly 5 million pounds of produce through the program, which is free, throughout the 26 county service area.
    “I help my parents out, “ Tommy said. “These fresh vegetables will be great for them since they can't really leave their house."
