Since 1984, Hays County Food Bank has worked to alleviate hunger in our community. Our vision is to create a well nourished community.

Food for Today, Hope for Tomorrow.

30,648 Hays County residents are food insecure. 14.8% of children under 18 in Hays County are food insecure. (Feeding America, 2020)

Food insecurity is defined by the United States Department of Agriculture as the lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life.

Get Involved

Find Food

If you need food assistance, our public food distributions and resource assistance can help.


Help fight hunger by donating to Hays County Food Bank. We are in this together.


Without the support of caring volunteers, we could not provide food or resources to hungry people in our community.

Our Impact

The majority of the food we distribute is rescued and donated food. We work with our wonderful partners and the community to ensure that good food doesn’t end up in landfills. We want to do our part to ensure that our community is fed while reducing waste.
