The Food Bank is deeply committed to improving the health of its community. Tobacco use on our campus doesn’t just affect our staff but also visitors and volunteers looking to become more engaged in our mission to nourish hungry people and lead the community in ending hunger. With 80 full-time staff and nearly 19,000 volunteers working with us each year, we have the opportunity to make a big impact.

We’re proud to announce that our campus is now tobacco-free, making us one of the largest nonprofit organizations in Central Texas to adopt such a policy.

What this means is all forms of tobacco products, including smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes, are prohibited from being used in and around our facility. In partnership with the Seton Tobacco Education Resource center, we’re providing free tobacco education and cessation classes to help staff quit the habit and protect our community from exposure to second-hand smoke.

You can help your workplace get started on implementing a tobacco-free campus by downloading this toolkit from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Learn more about the Seton Tobacco Education program here.
