Wallace for the Win!

 

 

We are pleased to announce that Wallace Middle School has taken first place, donating 1,999 pounds of food towards our 2nd Annual Spring Harvest Healthy Food Drive Challenge!

 

These preteen students went above and beyond to help out their neighbors in need. They are a true inspiration for our future.

 

 


 

Lend A Hand and Help End Summer Hunger

 

 

What is your favorite summer memory -- cooking hot dogs over an open fire, sharing watermelon on the 4th of July, or sandwiches with friends and family on a picnic? For the 45% of kids in Hays County who rely on free/reduced school meals, summer memories are laced with the struggle to find 3 meals a day. Hays County Food Bank wants to replace their distressing memories with good ones. Will you lend a hand to a neighbor when they need it most?

Please help us welcome Crissy Cohen, the newest edition to our food bank family!

 

Crissy came to us in January 2017 as a Nutrition intern. She was involved in our weekly campus distribution, and created low-cost recipes with nutrition facts to hand out with each bag of food. When a full-time position opened, she was excited about the possibility of joining our team.

Thanks From Our Clients!

 

Michael was working at the Outlet Mall when he was abruptly let go. "Thankfully, I was able to find you guys. And thankfully, they have nice people here to support me and to get me through this time so that I’m able to continue my life. So I’m just super thankful, I’m super glad to be here. The people are great.”
