Food Pantry

Buda United Methodist Church operates a food pantry that assists over 200 families per month. Monetary and non-perishable food donations can be arranged by contacting the church office. Volunteers are welcome and always appreciated. Various volunteer opportunities include weekly distributions on Wednesdays and Saturdays, drivers to pick up food orders at the Central Texas Food Bank (formerly Capital Area Food Bank) in Austin and the Hays County Food Bank in San Marcos each week and stock crew on Friday afternoons.
As a partner agency with the Central Texas Food Bank and the Hays County Food Bank, the pantry is able to provide extensive, non-perishable food choices to our clients. This is supplemented with fresh produce from the food banks and local farms.
Distribution hours are Wednesdays 10am-12pm and Saturdays 8am-10am. All pantry clients must live in the Buda or Kyle zip codes of 78610 or 78640 to receive assistance.

If you are interested in serving our clients or stocking shelves contact our Social Services Coordinator, Diana Woods for more information.
