Everyone should have access to food.


Learn how we reduce food waste.


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.

Spring Harvest Food Drive

A little competition to inspire giving

April 1  - May 15


Let's fill the food bank warehouse, cooler, and shelves with fresh foods and healthy pantry staples! Spring Harvest Food Drive is a fun competition where groups  collect food.


You have from April 1st until May 15th. Feel free to bring in donations throughout that time, but make sure our staff knows it should be counted toward your team's total and for Spring Harvest. The team with the most donation in pounds wins bragging rights for a year, the official traveling trophy to display, and our gratitude for filling the food bank!


Make sure to register your team below, and happy collecting! Email our Community Relations Coordinator if you have questions.

"Volunteering with the food bank makes me feel like I can help create a positive impact in my community! I love seeing people leave the food bank with smiles on their faces; the volunteers and the clients."


Thank you, Lucy!
