Through a network of more than 80 collaborating agencies, schools and mobile host sites, the Galveston County Food Bank distributes over 500,000 pounds of food monthly for redistribution through pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other non-profit partners working together to service individuals and families struggling with hunger. In addition, the organization focuses on diminishing hunger among vulnerable populations through its network partners and the following food bank-managed programs:
- Mobile food distribution brings large quantities of fresh produce via mobile tractor trailers into individual neighborhoods weekly, serving up to 700 individuals per truck load.
- Homebound Nutritional Outreach provides food boxes monthly to seniors or persons with disabilities who do not have the means or health to visit pantries or mobile sites.
- Children’s Nutritional Outreach provides weekend food through Backpack Buddies during the school year and weekly Kidz Pacz in the summer.
