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... 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!
