Spring Break -- Healthy Food Access for Families




Austin ISD Family:

Highlights: Locations where families can access food assistance are included in the “Emergency Food Assistance Referral List." And, the March calendars provide information about the Food Bank’s mobile food pantries and Fresh Food for Families distribution locations.


Families may call 2-1-1 for information about additional food resources in Austin.
