Donate Food

For individuals collecting fewer than 1,500 lbs of goods we encourage you to raise meals online by hosting a Virtual Food Drive using our free tool, or host a DIY food drive using our toolkit.

Do you have a buck or some doe to spare? Through the program, hunters can drop off legally tagged, field-dressed whitetail or mule deer to participating meat processors. The partner processors prepare the venison for distribution through the Central Texas Food Bank.Click here to learn more about the program and how hunters can help nourish lives in our community. Ready to participate? Click here to contact CTFB staff for more information.

Food donations under 1,500 pounds: The Food Bank considers donations under 1,500 pounds (or the size of two standard pickup truck beds) as individual donations and kindly asks that you deliver them directly to the Food Bank or one of our many partners with food pantries. To find a pantry near you, click HERE. Some food pantries are only open on certain days and would prefer to set a time with you for your drop-off. To ensure successful delivery please call the pantry before delivering your donation. For your safety and ours, please wear closed-toe shoes when dropping off your donations, and don’t exceed the speed limit of 5 mph around the drop-off zone.

Food donations over 1,500 pounds: For food donations over 1,500 pounds, contact our team to schedule a pick-up. Please ensure all donations are packed in cardboard boxes with sturdy bottoms or strong bags that will not tear or tip over. Contact our donation coordinators at 512-282-2111 Ext: 1404.
