About New Braunfels Food Bank

Founded in 2010, the New Braunfels Food Bank is a branch facility of the San Antonio Food Bank.

The New Braunfels Food Bank branch evolved from the San Antonio Food Bank’s client-choice pantry program, The Kitchen Table. Established to accommodate the growing need of hunger in the region, The Kitchen Table has offered nutrition education, benefits assistance, children’s programs, senior programs, financial literacy for years. The New Braunfels Food Bank branch is supported and structured under the San Antonio Food Bank’s leadership.
