Our April partner is the Central Texas Food Bank! We’d like to set a goal to raise enough money to provide a family of 4 with fresh produce for a month.
About Central Texas Food Bank
When the Central Texas Food Bank was established in 1982, it was with a goal in mind to help the hungry in the community. Over the years, the weak economy has increased challenges for clients who have turned to food pantries for food assistance.
The Central Texas Food Bank has been at the front line of hunger relief with the help of Partner Agencies in 21 counties across Central Texas. Together, they provided more than 45 million pounds of food to families in need during the 2016-2017 fiscal year, the largest amount distributed since the organization’s establishment in 1982, when only 330,000 pounds of food was provided.
The Central Texas Food Bank provides food and grocery products through a network of about 300 Partner Agencies and mobile food pantries, serving nearly 46,000 people every week. Though headquartered in Austin, the Food Bank serves 21 counties in Central Texas — an area about twice the size of Massachusetts. The Food Bank aims to nourish the lives of those they serve; they make it a priority to have fresh produce be 50% of all food distributed to our Central Texas neighbors in need.
