Ever wonder about Mission Possible’s food pantry and how we keep it stocked?
We partner with the Central Texas Food Bank to help stock our food pantry for our B.A.G.S. food assistance program.  The food order gets picked up, loaded into our van, then taken back to Mission Possible where it’s organized on the shelves of our food pantry.  As you can imagine, lots of arranging of food happens weekly in our food pantry.  Feel free to reach out to us if you enjoy organizing and want to lend a hand!
The food from our food pantry gets delivered to qualifying low income individuals and families in the 78702 zip code once a month.  This helps supplement their food supply for the month and creates the opportunity to build a relationship with them.  We have seen an enormous increase in food insecurity since the beginning of COVID, and B.A.G.S. food assistance helps address that need.  These deliveries happen at various times throughout the month, so each time we make home deliveries is an opportunity to rearrange, clean, and plan for the next delivery.
Most food from the Central Texas Food Bank has to be purchased, so we are always in need of monetary donations to our B.A.G.S. program.  This also allows us to purchase needed food from the grocery store to fill in the gaps of missing food staples, and allows us to also buy the necessary cleaning and household supplies we provide families periodically!

Ways to Get Involved:

Financial donations to the B.A.G.S. program help with our purchases of food from the food bank and for filling in the gaps that this food doesn’t cover.  Visit our giving page and select BAGS Program in the dropdown menu.
Want to get involved by hosting a food drive?  We are greatly blessed by donations of non-perishable food, and cleaning supplies!  Food drives are a great way to stock our food pantry!  We’d love to give you a list of needed items that you can collect at your church, business, etc.  Email jessica@mpaustin.org for a list of needs.
