The mission of the Food Bank is to feed hungry people in Hays County, Texas. Since 1984, we have been on the front lines bringing food to people struggling to make ends meet, seniors living on fixed incomes, low income families with children, the sick and disabled, and the homeless. In an effort to be accessible to anyone and everyone who needs our services, public food distributions are held Monday through Thursday in various locations throughout the county.
Mr. Jerry Gracy
A regular supply of nutritious food is crucial to overall health and quality of life for an individual. The Food Bank has a direct impact the health of the residents of our community by helping to feed seniors, children, and low income people. Hundreds of families per week attend our public food distributions and hundreds more are served by our partner agencies who pick up food for their clients at no charge. The work of the Food Bank gives thousands of people in Hays County access to almost a million dollars worth of food a year. Support of our mission allows us to access, distribute, and develop various sources of nutritious food and pass it along to people in need. Donations of food and money are needed year round to meet this demand.
