BVFB’s Mission
The Brazos Valley Food Bank, Inc. strives to alleviate hunger in the Brazos Valley by distributing food and educational resources to our neighbors in need through a network of hunger relief partners.

Statement of Goals and Values
« Reduce food waste by utilizing an organized and efficient system to acquire and reclaim food that might otherwise be wasted;

« Distribute food through a network of accredited partner agencies (pantries, meal sites, shelters, etc.) that in turn ensure that the food is distributed to individuals in need;

« Be accountable for the most efficient and effective use of our resources, realizing that these resources have been placed in our care, and are ours to administer, because of the generosity of others;

« Increase individual and community awareness and action concerning hunger and potential solutions;

« Play a leadership role in discussions and actions to resolve hunger issues in the community;

« Value the diversity of those we serve. Seek to understand the needs of individuals and or organizations, and remain flexible when determining how best to meet those needs;
