Need Help?

Our mission is to provide food for those in need and encouragement through sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We currently serve around 900-1,000 families each month.
Every client receives enough food to last about a week,
including meat, dairy (milk, juice, eggs, butter), and fresh produce.

 

 

Come see us!TuesdayWednesdayThursdayFriday10am-2pmIf you need a little help...

Please bring your picture ID and a proof of residence (a piece of mail with your name and current address on it) and show up on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. We use the Texas Department of Agriculture poverty guidelines (TEFAP) for qualification, but no one is turned away in an emergency situation.

 

We're going to offer to pray with you, but prayer is NOT required to be served.

 

The Storehouse is more than a food pantry, it’s a mission to the poor. Our loving prayer volunteers spend time with each client to listen to them and to offer prayer, if they agree to it. Every volunteer is trained to love and respect our clients and each person is treated with dignity and respect.

Fatherlessness in America

Aug 05, 2014

Fatherlessness in America is one of our most critical problems. No where else on the face of the earth in a developed country like ours, are there shootings like those we've seen again just recently. In an effort to help us understand the seriousness of this problem, I've gathered some information to give us the picture of what the American family is experiencing. It seems that "Fatherlessness" is the root of many of our social ills.

  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.
  • 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.
  • 85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Center for Disease Control)
  • 80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average. (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)
  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)

That's why the Church of Jesus Christ is so desperately needed. We are a mission to these fatherless families, and we endeavor to help with food and faith every time they come through our doors. This is something you can help with! Yes, I want to help fatherless families.

Storehouse Ranked in Top 20% of all Capital Area Food Bank Agencies

Aug 05, 2014

TheStorehouse has been selected among the top 20% of CAFB agencies. We had perfect inspections four years in a row, which no other agency has ever done, and we've remained sustainable.

To reward us they invited us to become retail partners with Wal-Mart and HEB for their Food Recovery Programs. We pick up meat, produce, dairy and other dry grocery products three days a week from Wal-Mart and five days a week from HEB.

In order to be eligible for this "free food", we had to add warehouse space, install a walk-in cooler, buy a pallet jack, and a Tommy lift for our box truck.

The Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) also made a grant available to us so we can buy more equipment to make our serving center the best it can be. CAFB will pay 75% of the equipment we select, and we pay 25%. We selected a 3-door-glass front cooler.

The cost is around $4,000. We are responsible for around $900, that has to be paid by July 11th.

When we pay our share, they will order the cooler and have it delivered to our door.

"My children eat a lot, they play a lot, but they eat like crazy. It’s great having something we can count on every month instead of having to worry about getting just a little bit of food on our budget..."
