Agency Profile

General Information

Agency Name:
Brazos Valley Food Bank
Description:
A central distribution site in the Brazos Valley that unites food donors, volunteers and hunger-relief agencies, the Brazos Valley Food Bank reclaims, then distributes surplus food to local partners - nonprofit organizations and church sponsored pantries - that, in turn, bring nourishment and hope to our neighbors in need.

The Brazos Valley Food Bank has been the "hub" of an anti-hunger relief network of over 40 different agencies that feed the hungry throughout the Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Madison, Robertson and Washington Counties. In 1985, we distributed 50,000 pounds of food. We project this year's distribution to top 6 million pounds.
