Supporting local Hill Country food banks

Across the state, food banks are seeing more faces than ever before. Whether you are in a place of need or a place of plenty, don’t forget your local food banks. A recent article from The Texas Standard stated that “the need for food bank services in [Central Texas] has increased by as much as 300%.” The need is there and if possible, now is an incredible time to give. 

The Central Texas Food Bank works with partners across 21 counties in Central Texas to ensure that families in need have access to nourishing food during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you need sustenance or would like to help, their website has a variety of helpful resources. The Community Resource Centers of Texas Inc. is “a one-stop shop for connecting rural residents with local health and human resources such as food, legal aid, employment, healthcare, housing, and more.” This nonprofit works with over 40 partners and has locations in four different Hill Country Counties – Blanco, Burnet, Llano, and Williamson. 

Another great resource for finding regional resources is FoodPantries.org – an online database for food pantries, banks, and soup kitchens across the country.
