In 2018, Brazosport Cares distributed 391,000 pounds of nutritious food. We helped put dinner on the table for 4,600 of our neighbors who struggle with hunger and we provided 326,000 meals for them to fill their pantries. We work tirelessly towards a community where everyone has reliable access to affordable and nutritious food.

Our Mission

The mission of Brazosport Cares is to feed Brazosport’s hungry though food distribution, education, collaboration and advocacy.

Brazosport Cares will achieve its mission by:

  • Providing a supplemental feeding program to the hungry that provides nutrition in a dignified and compassionate manner.

  • Conducing education programs that can lead toward long term change in people’s lives.

  • Connecting people with services that can help them improve quality of life and achieve self-sufficiency.

  • Building community awareness around food insecurity, its impact and solutions.

  • Serving as subject matter experts on food insecurity in our community.

My husband had a job opportunity that brought our family to the Brazosport area. Unfortunately, my husband’s opportunity did not work out which led my husband, our small children and me to live in our car. We had to make the choice with the little money we had to either buy food or to go to and from job interviews. We are so grateful to have been directed to Brazosport Cares Food Pantry. Brazosport Cares, not only helped feed our family, they provided an inviting atmosphere and made us feel welcome.
