    The Spirit of Sharing (S.O.S.) Inc., Food Bank has been in operation since June 1, 1988. We are an ecumenical group of churches and civic groups that have come together to help the needy of New Braunfels. All food distributed is donated and all labor is volunteer. Most of our donations come in as non-perishable food items. However, although we don't solicit money, we also receive monetary donations.

Churches and civic groups represented on the Board of
Directors are:

Cross Lutheran Church
Faith United Church of Christ
First United Methodist Church
New Braunfels Presbyterian Church
Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church
Eastside Baptist Church
First Protestant Church
New Braunfels Church of Christ
St. John's Episcopal Church
Community of Christ
Fist Baptist Church
Peace Lutheran Church
Oakwood Baptist Church
St. Paul Lutheran Church
Kiwanis Club

These churches and groups also contribute financially to the mission of the SOS Food Bank.


If you wish to donate food, just come by any
afternoon between 1:00 and 4:00 or call the Food Bank
to arrange another time. We are located at:

248 Merriweather St.
New Braunfels, Texas 78130
(Off of Business 35 and Old McQueeney Road)
Telephone 830 629 3663

Every family receives the "Basic Bag" of food which is
supplemented with canned goods and bakery and other
items, depending on the number of family members.  The
"Basic Bag" contains frozen meats ,
1 dozen eggs, flour, rice, sugar, beans, pasta,
tomato sauce, oatmeal and peanut butter.  The cost to put
together a "Basic Bag" of food is approximately
$20.00. If you would like to donate the equivalent of
a "Basic Bag" of food, you may send your check for
$20.00 to the SOS Food Bank.

Thank you for helping SOS Food Bank eliminate hunger
... because no one should be hungry.
