What do our Partner Agencies look like?
The Brazos Valley Food Bank partners with 35 food pantries, emergency shelters, soup kitchens, and programs for youth, senior citizens, and the disabled to provide more than 6.8 million pounds of food to the community each year.
The Brazos Valley Food Bank gets it food from public and private donations, grocery store reclamation, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), wholesalers, and the Houston Food Bank. Food is distributed to approved Brazos Valley Food Bank partner agencies for a Shared Maintenance Fee of approximately $0.10/lb. The Shared Maintenance Fee helps the Brazos Valley Food Bank acquire, sort, store, refrigerate, and distribute this food.
