Our Daily Bread Food Bank in Whitney, Texas, servesĀ 300 families with almost 700 family members by providing over 17,000 pounds of food each month.

Churches in Whitney along with the local community provide food and funds for the Food Bank. No funding is received from the government.

All workers are unpaid volunteers. Daily operations are provided by local community members who perform office and warehouse jobs to keep the Food Bank running.

Our Daily Bread Food Bank is part of Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance (LWMA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of people in the Lake Whitney area, including Aquilla, Blum and Whitney.
