Reminder - We are an essential business


If you qualify for services, you are allowed to visit a distribution. We provide groceries to low-income households and those suffering from a food emergency.


New Distribution Schedule!


 Check here and our Facebook for any updates.

  • Households may visit one Hays County Food Bank distribution each week.
  • Please limit the amount of people in your vehicle.
  • Please have a space cleared for your groceries in your trunk or truck bed before you arrive for distribution.
  • Pop your trunk. If your trunk does not open, we will place your food on the hood of your vehicle. You may then get out and put it in your car once our team member has stepped away. We will not put anything in the interior of your car.
  • Thank you for your cooperation as we try to keep everyone safe during this pandemic.
