Get Food

 


If you are in need of food, there is help available throughout the Brazos Valley from our network of partner agencies.

All the partner agencies listed on our website receive food from the Brazos Valley Food Bank. BVFB serves six counties in the Brazos Valley. Below is a list of BVFB parter agencies broken down by county.

 

What to expect when you visit a food pantry:

  • Food provided at no cost to you.
  • At each pantry you visit, you will be asked to complete a short intake form which asks basic personal and demographic information (name, address, number of people residing with you, income, date of birth, etc.) which will be kept private and confidentially. 
  • If you can, bring proof of where you live (driver’s license, utility bill, water bill, lease agreement, etc.). 
  • You are not required to bring proof of income or citizenship.
  • You are not required to participate in a religious event, or pay dues as a condition of receiving food.
  • You are not to be refused service or discriminated against based on your race, color, age, religion, national origin, disability, gender, sexual orientation or political affiliation.
  • You are to be treated with respect and dignity at all times.

You are allowed to visit each pantry in your service area at least once a month.

If there are no pantries open that serve your area, or if you have questions about the information provided, please give us a call at (979) 779-3663 during our business hours (Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm).
