Shopping

Agencies can search for food items, view item details, submit orders and review the status of orders through Agency Express. All shoppers must click “save” before continuing onto another shopping page, and click “submit cart” when done shopping.  

Ordering Procedures

All partner agencies are assigned a specific day and time for food pick-ups. Appointment times remain the same until your agency requests a change in advance. If a partner agency is unable to pick up at its appointed time, an agency representative must call Michelle White at 512-684-2150 to reserve another pickup time.

Agency orders MUST be received by 9:00 A.M. two business days before the order is to be picked up at the Food Bank or at a regional delivery site.
