Spring Harvest Healthy Food Drive Challenge

Spring is upon us, and with its beautiful warm weather comes all kinds of seasonal treats. The new leaves arrive on the trees, the grass is greener than ever, and the budding wildflowers are starting to bloom with radiant colors of red, purple, pink, and yellow. There’s even fruits and vegetables that taste their freshest during the spring season, such as strawberries, carrots,and tomatoes. Though the season may have changed, the hunger in Hays County is still great.The Food Bank is excited for our newest campaign, the Spring Harvest Healthy Food Drive Challenge, which challenges you to collect the most pounds of healthy foods from now until May 15th.IMG_6841

The Food Bank has 6 weekly food distributions and also supplies food to numerous agencies throughout the year. However, during the spring our food supply dwindles. We need the community to participate in feeding the hungry in Hays County, not just during the holiday season, but during the rest of the year as well. That is why we need our community’s participation in this inaugural food drive challenge.    Read more »

Cheffing it up with the Hays County Food Bank

Last Tuesday, I had the opportunity to sit in on the Hays County Food Bank’s Get FED Cooking Class called Food Wise. Food Wise is a nutrition cooking class that was created by the Food Bank’s very own Nutrition and Food Program Manager, Kirby Stewart. The great thing about this class is that it teaches families how to use the foods they receive from the food bank in a healthy way. It focuses on the nutritional values of fruits and vegetables, as well as the taste. Both children and adults can attend this hands-on cooking class.
