The Food Bank of Corpus Christi is a nonprofit organization that solicits and distributes food which might otherwise go to waste or be discarded by manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers. Since 1982, the Food Bank of Corpus Christi has been fighting hunger in the Coastal Bend by providing food and personal care products to various charity and service agencies. According to a 2006 Hunger Study these unduplicated numbers let you know how important the Food Bank of Corpus Christi is to South Texas. The Food Bank of Corpus Christi feeds 7,800 people each week so that’s 28,700 people per month and that means 78,900 people are fed by the Food Bank of Corpus Christi annually. The FBCC services an 11 county area of South Texas and 150 agencies or pantries operate in this 11 county area. The Food Bank of Corpus Christi conducts 25 mobile pantry drops each week. We also conduct 7 kid’s cafés each week and distribute 1,000 backpacks full of food each Friday so kids do not go hungry over the weekend. The Food Bank of Corpus Christi operates 7 programs including: Diabetes Hands On, Kid’s Café, Kid’s Backpack program, Mobile Pantry Program, Nutrition Education Program, an Outreach program and a volunteer program.
