How the distribution works

When cars roll up, volunteers will place pre-packaged boxes into the trunks of families' cars. Families will get 28 pounds of shelf-stable food such as peanut butter, rice, canned tuna and canned fruit. 

Central Texans can also access food through the food bank's network of partner pantries and mobile food pantry distributions throughout the area.

If you need more assistance finding food, you can call 211 or go to the Central Texas Food Bank's website. For schedule updates, you can call the Distribution Programs Hotline at 512-684-2559.
