Allen FD holds weekly food giveaway

Recently, the city of Allen Volunteer Fire Department was giving away more than 1,000 food boxes. According to FD Chief Frank Rudder, the department gives away more than 16 pallets of boxes, which feature food items such as meat, cheese, milk vegetables and other items, each week on Tuesday's for residents. Rudder said that when the COVID-19 pandemic first began, there was a great need to give away the items, but recently, less people have been coming by the Allen Fire Station. Rudder said he encourages any individual in need to stop by.
