HOW IS THE FOOD BANK FUNDED

 

The Get Up Community Center Food Pantry relies on the generosity and support of local businesses, churches, foundations, corporations, government, civic  groups and individuals in order to successfully continue serving Southwest   Texans who are at risk of going hungry. GUCC spends around $2k a month on food to give away for FREE....There are some pantries that require the client to pay a small fee for a box of groceries. Well GUCC leadership decided that, we wouldn't charge a fee because our ultimate goal is to feed the hungry.We strive to maintain the highest standard of efficiency while providing food to those in need. 98% of donated resources go directly to our food distribution program(s). GUCC has been voted one of the best food pantries in Southwest Texas!
