The Brazos Valley Food Bank (BVFB) utilizes food (over 5.5 million pounds on average annually), funds ($4.1 million on average annually) and friends (over 13,000 volunteer hours on average annually) to bring the Brazos Valley closer to being hunger-free.
As the hub of 36 different partner agencies that feed the hungry throughout Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Madison, Robertson and Washington Counties, BVFB helps to supply millions of meals to tens of thousands of individuals in need each year.
In addition to supplying food to partner agencies, BVFB oversees special programs targeting under-served populations to better reach those at risk of hunger.

Solving Hunger Today is our foundational strategy to nourish our neighbors in need - delivery food to over 100 community partners who in turn, distribute that food to their neighbors in need.
Ending Hunger Tomorrow interventions connect the food insecure to other resources that can help put food on their tables beyond today and help families eat healthier for healthier lives.
BVFB educates our communities on food insecurity and associated problems, and advocates for improved nutrition access policies.
BVFB stands ready to respond in the event of a disaster. Learn more about our preparedness strategy and how we've helped in the past below.
