December 15, 2023: Central Texas Food Bank

We at Steve Jackson Games are proud to support fantastic organizations that are making an impact on their local communities. Today we would like to feature one of our very favorites – the Central Texas Food Bank
The Central Texas Food Bank, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit with over 30 years of service, is the largest hunger-relief organization in the Central Texas region. In 2022, they succeeded in providing almost 54 million meals to the community and local organizations! Their mission is to nourish hungry people and lead the community in the fight against hunger. They fulfill their mission through three different avenues:
  • Those in the community who are experiencing hunger, food insecurity, and food scarcity are able to visit the bank to acquire free food. The CTFB will make suggestions on ways to combine the ingredients into healthy meals and provides education on how to prepare other low-cost dishes.
  • The CTFB additionally works with those in need to assist them in applying for an extremely important government resource: the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Those who qualify for the program, formerly called food stamps, receive an EBT card to use at grocery stores to purchase select items they will need for their family.
  • In addition to resources provided directly at the bank itself, the CTFB is a member of Feeding America and Feeding Texas and partners with 300 charitable and government agencies in 21 Central Texas counties to ensure streamlined food distribution throughout the area. 
On Giving Tuesday, we made a donation to the Central Texas Food Bank to aid in their efforts to bring healthy food to the Central Texas region and congratulate them on their amazing work!
