Donate Food

We accept a wide variety of healthy, nonperishable food items including boxed, bagged, and canned food. All donated food items must be unopened and have an intact label. Canned or boxed foods that are beyond the expiration date may be accepted. Baby food, formula, and adult nutrition drinks like Ensure cannot be accepted once they are out of date. We also accept fresh produce from local farms or gardens.

You can also donate through Amazon. If you don’t live close, but still want to send us food or supplies, you can go here and donate from our Wish List.

If you’re not sure about whether or not an item can be donated, please call the office at 512-392-8300 or email us. You may also be interested in coordinating an event.
