LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) - HEB customers took a stand against hunger and helped a local non-profit receive a record breaking donation.

The South Texas Food Bank received a check from HEB for $9,000 through it's "Help End Hunger" campaign.

$731,000 was raised - and it will benefit 16 Texas food banks - surpassing last year's amount by nearly 200,000.

Now in its 32nd year, Help End Hunger is a component of HEB’s nationally recognized Food Bank Assistance Program, giving customers the opportunity to help their local food bank in the fight against hunger and malnutrition among thousands of children, elderly and needy.
