Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goals for Bulverde Food Pantry Inc., dba Provisions: A 25:35 Outreach is to do more than provide mere day-to-day living needs, and to provide families and individuals with the tools and resources necessary to empower them to move toward more productive and responsible living, self-sufficiency, and an overall better well-being outcome. Our goals also include moving to a new facility in which we can provide more thorough and additional services.

Strategies for our Client Choice food pantry include offering advice to clients about how to make healthier food choices, and provide resources to help them with recipes and nutritional information for the foods we provide. A community garden is available, as is a collaborative effort from the San Antonio Food Bank, providing a Master Gardener, if desired, to teach clients in how to grow their own food.

We are implementing a new Client Resource Center which will give our clients some "self-serve" tools to enable them learn more about job, health, and educational opportunities in our community. We plan to expand these offered resources in the near future.

Collaborative partnerships have been formed to assist in medical screenings for clients and to provide low cost clothing if needed, as well as job counseling and assistance in researching job opportunities for those who are in need of work.

Bulverde Food Pantry Inc., dba Provisions has the capability of becoming more than a mere food pantry providing basic living needs, and will be a catalyst to overcome the problem of food insecurity and the need for healthier, more self-sufficient living. This will be accomplished through a continued collaborative effort and with significant partners in the community including the Bulverde/Spring Branch Area Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Comal County, the San Antonio Food Bank, the Bulverde/Spring Branch Activity Center, the Bulverde Thrift Store, Comal Independent School District, the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library, the McKenna Foundation, and New Braunfels Works.

We are consistently making progress towards all of our goals, and foresee a significant amount of progress over the next few years.
