The Austin Zen Center partners with the Trinity United Methodist Church to collect non-perishable food to be distributed to those in need. All are welcome to bring food items to AZC and leave them in the basket in the foyer. When the basket is full we deliver its contents to the Hope Food Pantry.
Hope Food Pantry volunteers distribute groceries to approximately 1400 individuals a month through three programs: Weekly Distribution, Backpacks to schools, and Partners’ designated families. The organization is funded by individuals, churches, grants and fundraisers.
