Social Service

Through our Social Services Department, the Food Bank of the RGV educates, informs, refers and assists clients in the Food Stamp application process along with any other assistance available through the Health and Human Services Commission.

Our Certified Navigators are available to assist our clients with;

Our Social Services Coordinators provide these services through home visits, via phone, or at any local public library, resource or information center, to meet the needs of each client.

Please take note that we do not have the authority to approve applications or conduct interviews, only assist with the application process.

Social Services Staff take action in educating our community in regards to health benefits and SNAP through attending a variety of events held through out the Rio Grande Valley such as; Pharrmers Market, Operation Lone Star,  National Night Out, health fairs, Veteran events, Parental Involvement Conferences, etc.  Our goal is to bring awareness to families that are in need.
