Food Donations for Federal Workers

We were notified late yesterday, by the Texas AFL-CIO, that the Central Texas Food Bank is having a difficult time keeping food on their shelves, due to the additional Federal Employees who have now been out of work for over a month.

Please, speak to your coworkers and coordinate to bring in food for pickup at your work location.

We plan to pick up the donations on Friday, January 25th, 2019. We know that this is not very much time, so it is important to communicate quickly and effectively to see if we can accumulate as much as we can.

The Central Texas Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing healthy meals and programs to Bastrop, Bell, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Coryell, Falls, Fayette, Freestone, Gillespie, Hays, Lampasas, Lee, Limestone, Llano, McLennan, Milam, Mills, San Saba, Travis and Williamson counties.
