History

Mission statement: Our mission is to feed hungry people in Hays County, Texas.

Vision statement: We envision a Hays County in which everyone has easy access to sufficient, nutritious food.

First food bank location, 1984

 

Established in 1984, the Hays County Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to providing food to underprivileged families and individuals in the greater Hays County area.

Our service area covers Hays County and outlying communities that fall within the boundaries of the San Marcos and Hays Consolidated Independent School Districts.

 

In addition to holding public food distributions four days per week, we also provide food to over 20 partner agencies for distribution to their own clients. Our partner agencies include the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center, the Fig Tree Program in Wimberley, the Buda United Methodist Church food pantry, and Southside Community Center.

Beyond our regular services, we distribute holiday boxes every November. These boxes include a frozen ham or turkey (depending on the market) and all the traditional trimmings needed to prepare a Thanksgiving meal at home. Visit www.TurkeysTacklingHunger.org for more information.
