Lake Whitney Area Food Bank

"Our Daily Bread" is the official name of our Whitney Food Bank. Food is provided by the churches of Whitney as well as donations from individuals.

Monthly Program

We provide food for 500 - 600 household members each month. Our doors are open to anyone who can provide a picture ID and proof of residence. You do not have to receive food stamps to be eligible for our food bank. The Food Bank Director determines what is an adequate amount of food items to distribute to each household based on family size and needs. Most clients receive food items every 30 days.

Weekend Students Program

During the school year, qualifying students are part of our "Backpack" program. Each Friday those designated students receive a backpack from the school counselor that is filled with canned goods containing food for breakfast and lunch for that weekend. Backpacks are returned to the school counselor the following Monday to be filled again before the next weekend.


Summer Students Program

When school is out, qualifying students may come by the Food Bank twice a month to receive "Summer Snack Bags". These bags have food for breakfast, lunch and a snack that should last for ten days. Those dates are:

  • July 3, 2019 (12:00 - 2:00)
  • July 17, 2019 (12:00 - 2:00)
  • August 7, 2019 (12:00 - 2:00)
  • August 21, 2019 (12:00 - 2:00)
