You can make a difference.
The Hays County Food Bank, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, provides food and grocery items to individuals, families, and more than 40 partner agencies throughout the county. In 2012, we distributed more than 599,000 pounds of food.
All of our services are free of charge. In order to successfully fulfill our mission to feed hungry people in Hays County, we rely on support from local businesses, organizations, churches, foundations, governments, and individuals. Check out our blog, calendar, and photo gallery for all the latest news and events.
Meet us on the San Marcos Courthouse Lawn to celebrate Hays County and everything that makes it great: Music, Art, Food, the Rivers and coming together as a community to help our neighbors in need!
Though the event is free, Hays County Food Bank will be accepting monetary donations as well as fresh produce and nonperishable foods.
This Foodstock is County Fair Themed, and there will be a Bake for the Bank (Pie Baking) Contest as well as a Pie Eating Contest.
Plenty of games, art, food, and other booths will be there to enjoy so come on out and join in the fun.
You can also choose to participate as a sponsor or a vendor.

Good Works at the S(o)uper Bowls
Yesterday, millions of people gathered together, regardless of race, gender, age, or religion, to watch the most viewed broadcasting event of the year. The Super Bowl attracts viewers of all types. Those who have a team directly involved in it are the obvious target. Then you have those who simply cannot stand a particular team, so they tune in to hopefully watch them lose. There are the die-hard football fans, the bandwagon fans, the fair weather fans, the fans of any type of big gathering, the spouses and significant others of crazy football fans, and the big commercial watchers. Regardless of who you are, there’s a good chance that the game was on wherever you were.
National Day of Service
“Not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke these words many years ago, and today we honor and remember him. He believed every man, woman, and child had the right to freedom and justice in America, regardless of skin color, age, income, job, etc. All people in this nation should come together to make America a better place to live. Dr. King believed in service, and that everyone should do their part to make this country the best it can possibly be.
