About hopefoodpantryaustin.org
Our mission is to help alleviate hunger in the community. Hope volunteers have
been supplying Austin families with groceries since 2000. Every client’s
circumstances are different so food is distributed in a grocery store type setting to
provide the empowerment of choice and to pick items suited for individual needs.
