Want to know more about how we can help before you contact us? You will find answers to commonly asked questions below.
In order to receive assistance with groceries and/or clothing, you have to:
- Live within the Azle ISD boundaries
- Provide photo ID and proof of address (e.g. utility bill, car insurance card)
- Be in financial need. You can find our income guidelines here. If your household income exceeds the guidelines, yet you are still in need, please contact us to discuss further.
- We provide a variety of shelf-stable items and when available: frozen meat, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, snack items, and fresh bread/bakery items.
- We can’t promise to provide all of your grocery needs. What we can do, is to supplement what you do have and create flexibility in your budget in order to afford other obligations such as rent, utilities, prescriptions, and health insurance.
You can receive groceries from the food bank and visit our clothing area once every thirty days. We realize the unexpected can occur and additional assistance may be necessary. If you are in need of extra help, please contact our office.
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide financial assistance at this time. Please contact our office for a list of organizations that may be able to help.
