Our food pantry has long served as a central program at El Buen Samaritano. We have worked in partnership with the Central Texas Food Bank for the past several decades to ensure Central Texans have access to healthy and nutritious food for themselves and their families. We know that many of the clients we serve live below the federal poverty line and/or in food deserts. We are committed to ensuring equity to food access in our community.

Our food pantry offers emergency food assistance with nutritious food to families and individuals in Central Texas. Clients are welcome to pick up food for themselves as well as neighbors or family members who may be home bound, mobility impaired, or without transport. No appointment is necessary.
How to Access Services
Our food pantry operates as a drive thru where clients arrive at our gates by vehicle or walk-up. We are proud and happy to serve you. Through our valuable partnerships with organizations such as the Austin Diaper Bank and Austin Animal Center we are able to provide additional items to our clients such as diapers and pet food. Pet food is available during pantry hours, while diaper distribution occurs every first and third Wednesday of the month from 8AM – 10AM. We carry sizes newborn – pull-up and have period products and wipes as well.
Tuesday and Thursday, 8AM to 10AM
