Notes:

The emergency food assistance program is the main program of
the Food Bank RGV. Through our member agencies, we are able
to help families in need of food throughout the Valley.
The service area of the Food Bank RGV consists of four
counties. There are over 194 member agencies throughout
these four counties. The Food Bank RGV delivery trucks
are constantly on the road delivering agency orders,
picking up donated product, and food drives.

These agencies consist of food pantries, on site feeding
centers, soup kitchens and shelters.

Emergency Food Assistance

In 2004, the Food Bank RGV distributed over 20 million pounds
of non-perishable, fresh produce, and frozen product through
over 194 member agencies.

Through these member agencies families and individuals were
fed 38,258 times in Acute Emergencies, 256,927 times in
Chronic Emergencies, 31,495 times in Supplemental Nutrition
programs and 1,511,083 meals were served to hungry persons.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program utilizes USDA commodities
through the TEXCAP program. In addition, the Food Bank RGV
receives product from national food retailers such as KRAFT,
Nabisco, and Del Monte through America's Second Harvest.
Also off-the-shelf product from food retailers like H-E-B
are shipped to FBRGV monthly. In addition, FBRGV distributes
fresh produce, bread, and frozen products.
