How Do Food Distribution Strategies Compare?

  • Fifty percent (50%) of food distributed by the Brazos Valley Food Bank passes through partner agencies .


  • Another 30% is distributed through Food Fairs held at partner agencies in partnership with the Houston Food Bank who supplies the truck and food (if they have a food fair section on their website, link to it). Food Fairs supplement regular partner agency food pantries, often times focusing on fresh produce.  



  • Another 8% is distributed through accredited drop sites and special events*. 


* Examples of drop sites including Public Housing, and BVCOG Agencies, Meals on Wheels and WIC. Special events include annual back to school events and Thanksgiving in the Brazos Valley
