Services:
The Texas Food Bank Network provides a unified voice among food banks in support of their common mission to end hunger in Texas.

1) Texas Fresh Approach is a joint venture between TFBN and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) to collect excess produce from state prison farms. TDCJ furnishes agricultural expertise, land, equipment, and labor, while the food banks cover the "growing" costs including seed, fertilizer, packaging and transportation. 2) Texas Second Chance: Another partnership program between TDCJ & TFBN, Texas Second Chance has provided labor for Texas food banks and a "second chance" for offenders of the State Jail Division and ID or Prison Units to develop job skills and give back to the community. 3) Texas Volunteer Gleaning Program: Also a partnership program with TDCJ, inmate labor is used to "glean" unmarketable fresh produce from farmers? fields. Once collected, inmates assist in the washing, sorting, discarding, and packaging of the fresh produce. 4) Texas Commodities Assistance Program (TEXCAP) is the USDA commodities program administered by the Texas Department of Human Services. TFBN members are the state contractor for the distribution of all USDA commodities. Texas has received national recognition for its Emergency Food Assistance Program known as TEXCAP. Known for its efficient and cost-effective delivery system, the TEXCAP model is being lauded as one of the best channels to distribute USDA commodities within the US. The Texas Food Bank Network members became the Texas state contractors of USDA commodities in 1997. By contracting with TFBN members, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission has benefited from: Streamlined program procedures and reduced duplication of services to households; greater statewide outlets for commodities; wider selection of food product for agencies; lower cost-per-pound rates for distribution; lower costs for cold storage since food banks already maintain significant cold storage capacity. 5) Surplus Agricultural Product Grant Program is a joint venture between the Texas Food Bank Network (TFBN) and the Texas Department of Agriculture. This program allows TFBN to help farmers donate product by offsetting part of the farmers harvest and packaging cost. TFBN has acquired and distributed over 24 million pounds of Texas grown product through this program. Farmers interested in this program should contact TFBN.
