In partnership with St. John’s UMC, Hope Food Pantry Austin fills 140 bags of ready to eat items each month and delivers them school counselors who, in turn, distributes them to students for weekend sustenance. Participating AISD schools are Blackshear, Campbell, Maplewood, Oak Springs, Brentwood, Reilly, Lamar, and Zavala.  It is so uplifting to meet so many people hard at work trying to provide a caring environment for the students. There are some amazing people in the Austin community making a difference every single day.
