Become An Advocate

Our mission is to collect, purchase, and distribute food to hungry children, families, and seniors in 19 counties across West Texas. We are steadfast in our commitment to address the issues surrounding hunger, such as its causes and solutions, and what we can do to make sure no one goes without food.

The West Texas Food Bank is engaged in the fight against hunger. We work with decision makers who shape public policies, and collaborate with Partner Agencies to strengthen families who are suffering.

You can make a difference by becoming an advocate for the Food Bank and the fight against hunger. The origins and outcomes of hunger are complex. We need a strong corps dedicated to helping West Texans move from hunger to health, and from financial uncertainty to stability.
