Tarrant Area Food Bank's weekly Mega Mobile Market is expanding through the month of November.

The organization announced it will hold five Mega Mobile Markets per week. The markets will be held Tuesday through Saturday through the month of November in various locations across the Tarrant County area.

The expansion was made possible by the Texas Department of Emergency Management that has deployed members of the Army National Guard to TAFB in order to increase the productivity of the Mega Mobile Markets.

Each family will receive approximately 100 pounds of high-quality produce, meat, dairy and groceries, according to the organization.
