Giving is good for your health!

Tax benefits!

Donating before December 31st can decrease your taxable income, meaning you could owe less come tax time! Do some good and have some good happen for you.


Make a difference!

Your donation can make a big difference in someone's life. Many households have to choose between paying bills like electricity, rent, and prescriptions or paying for nutritious groceries. Keeping programs like the food bank open can help our neighbors in need keep the heat on and keep their families fed.

Where do we get food from?

Hays County Food Bank sees thousands of pounds of food daily. But where does it come from? Who is responsible for the food we give out at our public food distributions and to our local partner organizations? Join us, as we share a day in the life of food acquisition.

Volunteer of the Month

Mattie Ledergerber

Growing up, Mattie's family utilized food banks and it was really important for him to have this experience of giving back to services he once used,


"Something I took away from this internship is how important this is to the community, and how much people actually benefit from volunteering."


Thank you, Mattie!
