At these special food distributions, the Central Texas Food Bank will distribute free food to help those who are facing increased food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees will receive an assortment of food items which will vary, depending on available supplies. While these food distributions are primarily designed as drive-through events, no one in need of food will be turned away.
Recipients who are driving through are requested to make appropriate space in their trunk or hatch. Those arriving via public transportation or on foot should look for the designated walk-up area.Please note: we recommend recipients without vehicles bring containers in which they can carry the food, as it will be in boxes that may be difficult to carry.
During the COVID-19 pandemic and the aftermath of the severe winter storms, the Central Texas Food Bank is continuing to meet the needs of those facing hunger.
In addition to these special distributions, Central Texans in need can also access food through our network of partner pantries and mobile food pantry distributions throughout Central Texas. For the latest information on getting help, go to centraltexasfoodbank.org and click on “Find Food Now”. Once you find the distribution site nearest you, please call them to confirm their hours of operation since things are changing rapidly. You can also call 2-1-1 for the latest information.
The Food Bank stands ready to help all Central Texans affected by the pandemic, but we’ve seen demand for our services skyrocket recently, severely straining our resources. So if you’re able to help, we need monetary donations. Please donate at centraltexasfoodbank.org.
