Food is a basic need. Unfortunately, not everyone has food on the table. In Williamson County, 12.5 percent of residents and even more kids, 18.3 percent, face hunger each day.
No one should have to worry about their next meal. How can you help?
Donate to the Central Texas Food Bank
The Central Texas Food Bank is Williamson County’s food bank. We partner with retailers, manufactures and farms to make your donation go further. We can stretch each $1 donation to provide four meals. Thanks to our purchasing power and fleet, we’re able to distribute food to families in need across 21 Central Texas counties, including Williamson County, through our network of more than 260 pantry partners and Mobile Food Pantry distributions.
That means your neighbors facing hunger can turn to one of our partner pantries or Mobile Food Pantries in Williamson County to receive nutritious food without having to travel to our headquarters in Austin.
Last year we supplied enough food to provide more than 4.3 million meals in Williamson County. We distributed more than 5 million pounds of food in Williamson County through our 15 pantry partners and programs.
We couldn’t help our neighbors in Williamson Country without volunteers. Each month, we rely on volunteers to help us run three Mobile Food Pantries in Taylor, Cedar Park and Bartlett and a Fresh Food For Families distribution in Taylor. Volunteers distribute food, provide cheerful assistance and help set up and tear down the pop-up food distribution.
Individuals must be 8 years or older to volunteer at a Mobile Food Pantry. All volunteers under 18 years of age require an adult chaperone who is 21 years or older. Sign up for a volunteer shift here.
