Food and Home Essentials Pantry

For those in need of immediate food and home essentials assistance, we do operate a pantry on-site in addition to our once a month Commodities distribution. We have also partnered with the New Braunfels Food Bank to be able to refer those in need to them for further assistance. They also offer cooking classes as well as food budgeting classes to help you manage your funds while at the grocery store. Their meal planning tips are beneficial to helping families make healthy choices and they also offer gardening tips so that you can learn how to provide healthy fruits and vegetables to your family from your own backyard or container garden.
