Why is the Food Bank a great community investment?

Our efficient and effective capture of, handling of and distribution of food is made possible by the broad support from government, businesses, charities, foundations and individuals in the community.  The result: 96 percent of all donated resources back to the community in the form of programs and food distribution at a time of ever-growing demand on our services.  What does this community support look like in Central Texas?

  • In the last fiscal year we provided 24 million meals
  • In the past 12 months, 19,000 people volunteered with the Food Bank donating 96,000 hours.
  • We've rescued 13 million pounds of food in the last 12 months from local grocers and wholesalers that would have ended up in the trash.
  • The Food Bank is rated four out of four stars by Charity Navigator.

All financial contributions are tax-deductible.
