Fayette County (Texas) Farm Bureau - Since Farm Bureau's beginning in Fayette County, the organization has been active in promoting agriculture through its influence on elected officials, attending legislative meetings and conferences on the local, state and national level, and helping establish the direction the state organization takes. In 2014, Fayette County Farm Bureau donated 323 lbs. of canned food.

 

The Swiss Alp Local of the Fayette County Farm Bureau has partnered with us and has a "Victory Recycle Garden“ in which all the organic produce is donated to our food pantry.  In 2014, that was 178lbs. of fresh produce.

Second Chance Emporium - a resale store in La Grange that is operated by a coalition of seven local churches and offers new and used clothing, household goods, small appliances, and furniture which are sold at very low prices in order to benefit the underprivileged members of our community.  All profits are then given to Fayette County charities, service organziations, and scholarships.  Second Chance gives away over $100,000 per year in charitable contributions.  They provide SAFP with vouchers for our clients to obtain free clothing and household items in emergencies.

SWIFT (Schulenburg / Weimar In Focus Together) - is funded in part by an AmeriCorps Texas grant. The AmeriCorps Members provide Tutoring, Mentoring, Parent Education and Health Promotion programs on-campus at all area schools and at many other venues in the community for youth, families and adults. Through a gracious donation of the former Bishop Forest Football Field, Blinn College in Schulenburg provided the opportunity for SWIFT to realize its vision to create a Community Garden in 2011 that would serve as an outdoor classroom and Learning Center. A portion of the harvest of this garden is donated to the Food pantry.
