On Thursday, July 28, Bandera Electric Cooperative Donated $2,000 to the Comfort Table and Food Pantry. BEC representatives presented the check to Susan Die, Comfort Table pantry program manager and Roy Die, board president.
The Comfort Table and Food Pantry have doubled their budget to serve the community effectively after hardships over the past two years, including the pandemic and winter freeze. The donation will help offset the cost of purchasing wholesome food items and operating costs for the nonprofit organization.
“We are thrilled that BEC supports our mission of feeding the needy and helping the community of Comfort,” said Susan. “This donation will go to our continuing efforts of stocking the pantry with nutritious food for our participants.”
Founded more than 20 years ago by a group of Comfort churches, Comfort Table and Food Pantry’s mission is to feed the hungry of Comfort and surrounding areas by providing meals and food assistance. The pantry is located in the parking lot of Immanuel Lutheran Church at 318 High Street.
The food pantry is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the first and third Wednesday of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Comfort Table serves dinner Wednesday evenings from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for the community.
