We have many programs that offer assistance to the people of the Big Country.
Our Social Services Outreach Coordinator helps increase enrollment through food stamp application assistance in 13 Texas counties.
The Food Bank of West Central Texas provides food to a service area of over 12,000 square miles. Some of our member agencies must travel 90-100 miles to pick up their order. This is a huge problem because of the cost of fuel, the lack of vehicles or trailers to haul large quantities of food, and the shortage of manpower.
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.
