The Central Texas Food Bank, in partnership with the Round Rock Area Serving Center and Amazon, has expanded its home delivery program to Williamson County. The goal of the program is to serve more people in need by increasing the accessibility of food assistance for underserved households.
Participants enrolled in the program will receive a monthly, 30-pound box of shelf stable groceries—such as oatmeal, pasta, corn flour, dried beans, canned protein, and canned fruits and vegetables—delivered in a contactless method directly to their home by Amazon. All groceries and delivery are free of charge.
The program, which began serving Travis County residents on June 1st of 2021, is now open to Williamson County households (excluding zip codes 76530 and 76577) with adults ages 60+, people with disabilities, veterans, and active military members who are in need of food assistance and are experiencing barriers to attending in-person food distributions.
To determine eligibility and/or enroll in the program, contact the Round Rock Area Serving Center:

All groceries are free to qualifying households and participants may cancel their enrollment at any time.
Amazon donates free delivery services through their network of Amazon delivery service partners, who make safe, contactless deliveries directly to participants’ homes. Round Rock Area Serving Center provides caseload management, screening, and enrollment. Each delivery consists of a box with enough food for 25 meals. To date, the program has made more than 8,900 deliveries in Travis County consisting of more than 196,000 meals to more than 1,260 households.
