Food Donations can generally be accepted at our facility on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. However, our facility is staffed on an irregular schedule. Please call to confirm our availability on any specific day.
Registration is required. Neighbors qualify for food based on guidelines established by the Texas Department of Agriculture and the San Antonio Food Bank.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
