East Texas Food Bank Programs

Child Hunger Initiatives: Our child hunger initiatives are focused on making sure children are being fed well in order that they grow healthier, get more out of school, and are able to achieve what they want without lack of adequate food. Kids Cafe is an after-school program that serves snacks and meals to kids in a safe environment. BackPack Program supplements weekend meals by sending kids home with backpacks full of easy-to-prepare foods to last throughout weekend. Summer Food Service Program exists to make sure school-aged children and youth who normally receive meals during the school year do not go hungry during the summer when these programs no longer operate. In addition to food, our programs also offer various forms of Nutrition Education aimed especially at youth. Rural Outreach and Delivery delivers food and other grocery items from the Food Bank to strategic sites in outlying communities enabling rural agencies to better benefit from membership with the Food Bank. Fresh Produce Program: distributes fresh fruits and vegetable to clients through partner agencies. We distributed over 10 million pounds of fresh produce in FY2019. Nutrition Education: promotes a long-term solution to hunger and poor nutritional habits by providing parents on a low income struggling to feed their families the cooking, nutrition and food budgeting skills they need to make healthy and economical food choices.
