Testimonials

I cannot thank you all enough for the positive volunteer experience I’ve had with y’all the past 2 months. The heart of the organization shines through all the work you each do. I have loved every minute of my work with y’all. Keep up the amazing work!! Thank you, thank you!

Sara HCFB Volunteer

This organization has done more to help people in Hays County than any other—even though there are many good non-profits and churches who do their best for people, you are the one people come to again and again without fear of being rejected.  You are wonderful!  Thank you, staff, Board of directors and volunteers. 

Bro. Jim Lanning Redwood Baptist Church

No one should be hungry – ever.

[Donating] is a way for you to make a visible impact in your community.

Debra HCFB Donor

I support HCFB because it operates effectively in my community. 

Richard HCFB Donor

Both of my parents are retired, disabled, and on a fixed income. The HCFB has helped tremendously. We have made many meals from the food bank and are so thankful for the help.

Sara Client - Niederwald, Texas

There is a very comfortable, no stress feeling [at the food bank]. Everyone feels welcome and part of a community.

Diane HCFB Volunteer

It is very costly to feed the family, pay bills, etc. We have a large household, my wife is disabled and I am presently unemployed. We have to be very careful how we spend money. Thanks to the food bank it has helped to make food go farther. We try very hard not to waste food and to be creative with the various food we receive. By receiving food from the food bank, it takes away the worry of where our next meal will come from. The staff has been great and our children are fed and thankful for all we receive.

Wayne Client - San Marcos, Texas

This is more fulfilling than any job I have ever had. I look forward to coming to work and feel satisfied when I leave. The greatest vocation any person could have or want.

Daniel HCFB Volunteer

The HCFB has helped make sure our children have had food in times when we didn’t know where the next meal was coming from. (HCFB) treats you like family and understand how you feel having to go through such struggles.

Deborah Client - San Marcos, Texas

I do it for the love of others. It is an appreciation for what God has done for you.

Eloy HCFB Volunteer and Client

My family needs help because times are hard, we are barely making it by on my husband’s job. I can always depend on receiving food (from the Hays County Food Bank) every week.

Michelle Client - Kyle, Texas

It’s very gratifying to help other people, I’m enjoying every minute.

Abel HCFB Volunteer

My husband was laid off 3 days after my son-in-law lost his job. My daughter is expecting, so we are a family of five. My fridge was bare. I didn’t know how to feed my family. When we got food I was so happy to have food to eat. It helped our family. Thank you.

Diane Client - Kyle, Texas

I became a volunteer because I was going to the distributions to get food for myself. There were never steady volunteers so I just asked how I could help. I’ve been doing it ever since, I love it.
