Barnard Beef Cattle Company Matching Fundraiser for OPS
We're raising money to replace our freezers and repair our box trucks.
Without the freezers we're unable to store the perishable food items, and without the trucks, we're unable to pick up any food items from the Central Texas Food Bank. The Food Bank does not deliver, and it is our responsibility to pick the items up. Without trucks that can accommodate that we will be unable to continue our food pantry as normal.
During COVID, we're still providing assistance to the military and first responder families in our community. On average, our pantry serves approximately 2,500 families per month, with an average of 625 per week.
Including utilities, upkeep of the freezers and trucks, and food costs, the pantries operational costs is about $8,000 per month. Your donation is critical to our ability to stay open and continue to serve our community. We appreciate any donation you can make.
