Feed the Need Missions is a nonprofit hunger relief organization headquartered in Bastrop, Texas. Founded in 2010, we mobilize volunteers to feed people in their communities physically and spiritually. Feed the Need Missions provides hunger relief throughout North and Central Texas and dispatches disaster relief teams nationwide.

More than a typical food bank, Feed the Need Missions recognizes that hunger comes in many forms. Some long for a meal, while others need meaningful connections with others. Many come to us in search of purpose or prayer. Feed the Need Missions stands ready to meet these needs in a Christ-centered environment. Anyone, from any background, with any form of longing or lack, is welcome.



Feed the Need Missions’ sites provide hunger relief by offering free, weekly hot meals across North and Central Texas. Currently, eight sites serve an average of 2500 meals every month. The sites are run by dedicated volunteers with a heart for their community, many of whom started out as guests.

In the wake of devastating disasters, Feed the Need Missions “Go Teams” provide disaster relief in the communities we currently serve and neighboring communities. We help bring order to the chaos crisis creates by providing hot meals, listening ears, and by sharing the love of Jesus.

We create hunger relief events as well as informational gatherings that allow us to build vital relationships while we meet needs and share the love of Jesus. These events are instrumental in allowing us to expand our reach to new potential volunteers, donors, corporate partners, and communities.
