At El Buen Samaritano, we are dedicated to ensuring that every family in Central Texas has equitable access to food and nutrition year-round. We firmly believe that equitable access to food opens doors to health, well-being, and brighter futures for all.

Our Vision

Our Hands for Hope vision is simple yet profound: Everyone Nourished – Everyone Thrives! With your support, we are making this vision a reality every day. You can learn more about our Hands for Hope Food Access initiatives here!

Equitable Access to Food Changes Everything

Imagine the physical, spiritual, emotional transformation that can occur when individuals and families are nourished. Envision children embarking on their educational journeys, their young developing brains and minds free to explore, learn, and dream. Imagine a community where everyone’s “bienestar” (wellbeing) is prioritized and safeguarded through equitable access to nourishment – food!

Introducing New Food Access Programs

El Buen has been at the forefront of providing essential and equitable food access in Central Texas through our onsite drive-through pantry, home-delivery and partnerships – and now through our new Mobile Food Pantry Van. Our Mobile Food Pantry Van will triple our capacity to create access to food. Our Mobile Food Pantry Van is a connection to our community bringing fresh, nutritious food as well as other resources that increase access to food for our neighbors in Central Texas.

Will you join us in ensuring that our Food Access initiatives continue to thrive?
