Mobile Food Pantry

We are very excited about the opportunity provided to us by Feeding America and American Idol. The Mobile Food Pantry Program delivers staple items to communities throughout the West Central Texas area. The food bank delivers food at no cost to the sites, each of which provides the facility, a site coordinator and volunteers who distribute the food. Sites receive food monthly
