When Central Texas Food Bank was founded in 1982, its goal was to help the hungry in the community. Over the years the weak economy has increased the challenges for customers who have turned to pantries for grocery support. The company now works with partner agencies in 21 counties in central Texas, providing families in need with more than 39.2 million pounds of groceries in fiscal 2017/18.
