“All of us at Whataburger are committed to bringing the community together in taking action against hunger,” said Whataburger Franchisee Billy Hablinski. “It’s a privilege to partner with the East Texas Food Bank for the third year, and with the support of our most loyal customers, we’re able to help make sure our neighbors have enough to eat throughout this holiday season.”
