The Community Food Bank (CFB), located in Fort Worth, has a food pantry open to those in need. During the holiday season, CFB offers extra assistance, such as a free hot meal alongside boxes of groceries.
Adam Rentscheler of Texas Bikers Helping Texas volunteered at CFB, bringing the group’s food truck to the organization’s Forth Worth location for a one-day event on Tuesday morning while a long line formed outside.
Anyone in line for groceries and food could get a free hot breakfast and lunch served by the Texas Bikers Helping Texas.
“If we can’t help them people then we’re not doing our job,” Rentscheler explained. He is known as a “motorcycle preacher” and regularly volunteers and advocates for giving back to the community.
“I was given the name ‘preacher’ cause that’s all I ever talk about,” Rentscheler said. “They don’t need to know who I am, or who anybody in that trailer is, as long as they know the Lord, I’m happy.”
Texas Bikers Helping Texas has a five-year history of supporting and assisting CFB.
“We take pride that we have partners that will come out and feed them a hot meal,” Regena Taylor, Community Food Bank executive director, said. “It takes a village to do everything.”
Rentscheler encouraged people to be charitable, saying, “Don’t turn a blind eye. Lend a hand when you can. Somebody might need your hand.”
This coming Sunday, Texas Bikers Helping Texas is planning a fundraising ride to help the family of Athena Strand.
For those interested in giving back to the community this holiday season, CFB is collecting donations for Christmas. The organization’s Walmart Wish List is available here, and its Amazon Wishlist can be found here.
