The Central Texas Food Bank has announced the expansion of its home delivery service to Williamson County.
The expansion is part of a collaboration between Round Rock Area Serving Center and Amazon to help those in need by making food assistance more accessible to underrepresented households.
Families will get a 30-pound box of shelf-stable foods each month, including oatmeal, pasta, corn flour, dry beans, canned protein, and canned fruits and vegetables.
Amazon will send the package to participating houses in a contactless manner and all groceries and delivery are free of charge.
The program has been available in Travis County since June 2021 and is now available in Williamson County.
Adults 60 and older, those with disabilities, veterans, and current military personnel in need of food assistance who are unable to attend in-person food deliveries are eligible.
The Central Texas Food Bank is the region’s largest hunger-relief charity.
They collaborate with national food donors, financial supporters, and volunteers to meet unmet needs in Central Texas.
Last year, the group served approximately 54 million meals with the help of private, government, and charitable partners.
