The Food Bank reaches out in Pflugerville and North Austin.

October 15, 2009 § Leave a comment

Thanks to Tom Ramsey’s generous donation of a 6,000 square foot building, the Capital Area Food Bank is able to provide more food and client services for families through the Reaching Out Center in Pflugerville and North Austin.

Tom, owner of Snappy Snack Mobile Catering, and his wife, Monica, were already operating a food pantry from his warehouse. Tom says he has a personal connection to those who need help and says he wants people to feel welcome. When client need started to increase, he decided to devote a large portion of the building to serving clients, and offered CAFB the opportunity to assume operations of the food pantry.  

Watch the video to hear what these first-time clients had to say about their experience with hunger.

CAFB is working to turn the Reaching Out Center into a model pantry that all Partner Agencies can learn from, including the addition of the CAFB Self-Sufficiency Program, scheduled to begin in the next few months.
