Who We Serve

Did you know that at least five out of the eight counties we serve, including one major city (Laredo, Texas) in our area experience critical poverty rates?


What does this mean?


There are tens of thousands of Texans at risk of hunger every day in the South Texas area alone!


One of the largest food banks in the area, The South Texas Food Bank currently serves eight counties in the south Texas region: Webb, Zapata, Jim Hogg, Val Verde, Starr, Maverick, Dimmit, and Kinney.



The South Texas Food Bank distributes enough food to feed an average of 28,000 FAMILY UNITS per month throughout the eight counties!


The majority of those helped by the food bank are:

  • Children
  • Senior citizens on fixed incomes
  • Working families and/or struggling mothers who cannot make ends meet

Through some of our local and regional partner agencies, we are able to provide food assistance to the homeless, indigent people working, and even victims of domestic violence.


For more information about hunger in the South Texas area, read Feeding America's Hunger in America Study.
