GSM Food Pantry

Good Samaritan provides both perishable and non-perishable food staples to families who find themselves facing food insecurity and who reside in Brown county, Texas.  Families may come once a month as needed.

Population(s) Served

GSM partners with schools in Brown county to provide weekend nutrition to students who are identified as chronically hungry by school  personnel.  Child-friendly food is sent home on Friday afternoons.  There will be enough food for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 2 snacks.  The food provides 60% of the child's weekend nutritional needs.  If there are younger siblings in the home, a food bag is sent for them as well

Population(s) Served

Good Samaritan's Food Pantry partners with area bow and rifle hunters of white-tailed deer, which are plentiful in our area to provide a ready source of protein for our hungry clients.  Hunters are encouraged to use all of their hunting tags to harvest deer to be donated to the food pantry.  The venison is ground and placed into 2-lb chubs and distributed through our Food Pantry.  There is no cost to the hunter.

Population(s) Served

Samaritan Aid assists families who find themselves in financial crisis and in need of assistance with utility and/or rent payments.  The client is required to pay a portion of the bill  up front in good faith and then Good Samaritan pays the remainder to the utility provider on behalf of the client.

Population(s) Served

Good Samaritan sells good, used clothing, household items, shoes and wot-nots at very low prices (most items are 50 cents or 3 pieces for $1) to help families stretch their budgets.  Money made from the clothing room is then put back into the general operations of the ministry.

Population(s) Served

Food is delivered to the homes of senior and/or homebound adults who have been referred due to their current malnutrition or being at-risk of malnutrition and are unable to access our Food Pantry

Population(s) Served

A box is filled with non-perishable food items for homeless individuals. They may come every two weeks to receive a box of food and if needed, hygiene items, sleeping bag and blankets

Population(s) Served

Money is raised to purchase show pigs from youth who have entered their pig into the county's Youth Fair. At the conclusion of the Fair, pigs are purchased from the youth then fed for several weeks to eliminate any antibiotics, etc.and to fatten them up. They are then slaughtered and the meat is ground and delivered to Good Samaritan's Food Pantry.
