Note: This story has been updated to include a food drive-thru at Round Mountain Baptist Church in Leander and a diaper-only drive-thru at Hope Presbyterian Church in Austin.

Two local nonprofits—Reveal Resource Center in Cedar Park and Hill Country Community Ministries in Leander—have adapted their food pantries to the coronavirus pandemic by offering free food drive-thrus nearly every day of the week.

Those coming for assistance never leave their car. Food is loaded into the back of their vehicle.

There are no income guidelines, and no one is turned away, according to both nonprofits. However, state law requires that those requesting aid must provide their name, address and annual income.

RRC also offers free diapers, formula and feminine hygiene products.


RRC and HCCM ask that families visit the drive-thrus only once a week to ensure there is enough for everyone who needs it. The drive-thrus will be open through May 31.

Seniors, disabled citizens and those who lack transportation may call HCCM at 512-259-0360 or RRC at 512-981-7721 to coordinate a delivery.

Leander ISD is also operating free lunch drive-thrus each school day for students at four schools.
