Senior Care and Homebound Program

Mobile Food Pantry - Reaching the Underserved

The Mobile Food Pantry is working in partnership with area churches and the Senior Citizens Center of Brownwood to identify those who would qualify for the program in areas of Brown County who are often underserved due to lack of transportation, health issues. or economic hardships. 

Clients are provided a once a month delivery or pick up at a local Church site,  of USDA products that we give out through our Food Pantry. We have trained volunteers who are responsible for the packing and distributing of boxes along with all necessary paperwork. Miscellaneous products such as bread and snack foods may be added when available. 

If you would like more information about the Mobile Food Program or if you belong to an organization that works with this population and have a question about referral, please call 325-643-2273 or 325-203-2489.

Homebound Program

Following is a sample menu for someone on the Homebound Program:

  • Box of Cereal
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Oatmeal
  • Canned tuna or chicken
  • Canned beans
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned soup
  • Juice
  • Crackers
  • Peanut butter
  • Soft granola bars
  • Ensure or Glucerna, as available
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables, as available

Boxes of easy to open and prepare food are delivered twice a month to the homebound. Those on the program are referred by other helping agencies and are qualified only if there is no one else who can pick up food for them. 

It costs around $40 per box to provide nourishment to this vulnerable people group. As with all of our hunger ministries, this program would cease to exist without the generous support from our community. You can help by donating monetarily to the project and through volunteerism. As the program grows and more people are added, we need people who are willing to deliver these boxes twice a month to the homes of those who have been referred. Please take action now to support this incredible program!

Thank you to our generous sponsors:
