Where do we get food from?

Hays County Food Bank receives and rescues thousands of pounds of food daily. But where does it come from? Who is responsible for the food we give out at our public food distributions and to our local partner organizations? Join us, as we share a day in the life of food acquisition.

Volunteer of the Month


Jessica James is a journalism professor at Texas State University, but has helped out this summer during her time off. She has been an essential part of our food rescue team, traveling throughout Hays County weekly! 


When asked about the highlight of her experience here, she said "Seeing the need at the county level and being a part of the process has been really rewarding and satisfying. Especially because there is so much food available to rescue and so many hungry people, it just makes it that much more gratifying!" 


Jessica encourages everyone to volunteer at the food bank! 


From all of our staff, clients and supporters - THANK YOU Jessica for your passion to give back!
