PHARR, Texas -The Food Bank RGV is delighted to extend its heartfelt gratitude to Driscoll Health Plan for their invaluable support as a Grapefruit-level sponsor of Empty Bowls 2023. Driscoll Health Plan’s generous contribution will enable the provision of an additional 25,000 meals to those in need within the community.

Driscoll Health Plan’s commitment to fighting hunger has been demonstrated not only through their sponsorship of Empty Bowls 2023 presented by H-E-B Hunger Relief but also through their prior sponsorship of Empty Bowls Lower Valley 2023 in Brownsville earlier this year. 

“Driscoll Health Plan’s unwavering support has played a vital role in our mission to alleviate hunger within the Rio Grande Valley,” stated CEO Libby A. Saenz. “Their sponsorship of both Empty Bowls events this year showcases their dedication to our cause, and we are profoundly grateful for their partnership.”
