Emergency Food Access

Local food pantries and school districts are providing emergency food access in your community! If you are in need of food assistance, please call 211.

The 211 number is the place to send people to start if they are in need for food assistance. This number has information about other essential community services as well (rent, unemployment, etc.)

The above statement is the coordinated messaging coming from all partners working in emergency feeding, and can be found on the City of Austin general webpage.

They also have need for volunteers and more information on their response here: 

The Central Texas Food Bank is exempt from Austin’s ‘Shelter in Place’ order, issued Tuesday, March 24, 2020. As an essential business providing food to nearly 46,000 people each week, we will remain open and accepting volunteers, in accordance with Order issued by the City of Austin. 

They’ve adjusted their volunteer shifts to maximize social distancing and are taking even more sanitary precautions than usual to minimize risks. If you’re healthy and not in a high-risk group, please consider helping out. Volunteers must sign up online prior to showing up to help out.
