Have you ever wanted to host a canned food or donation drive?
Tips to Get Started for a Group Food Drive:
• Select your dates – a two-week period works best
• Select a location to collect the food. The Serving Center loans its food collection barrels for your organization.
• Promote your food drive. The Serving Center shares its logo and flyers.
• Collecting cash is easier than collecting food. The Serving Center stretches cash donations by paying $.11 per pound at the Central Texas Area Food Bank.
• Deliver your food to the Serving Center or schedule a pick up
*Let us know when you are coming to drop off and we’ll give you a tour of the food pantry and our facilities.
Students & Groups Make An Impact
We always have a need for students and groups to get involved.
Have you ever wanted to make a difference at work or school?
The Serving Center needs your help and you can sponsor a food drive or help support one at your local school or workplace.
The Food Pantry – Food Drives Give Back with a Purpose!
The Serving Center food pantry is always in need of food and must rely on the community for donations and supplemental food drives. The Serving Center is a partner agency of the Central Texas Food Bank, which serves 250+ food pantries in Central Texas. The Central Texas Area Food Bank does not have inventory to meet all the needs of the Serving Center food pantry.
