The Comfort Table and Food Pantry is a 501c3 organization. Our Mission is to feed the Hungry in the Comfort area by providing meals and food assistance.  Founded over 20 years ago by a group of Comfort area churches, the Table and Food Pantry provide food assistance to people in Comfort & surrounding areas.

No one should have to go without food. Whether the person is elderly, and their social security check just will not stretch enough... a single Mother trying to feed her kids ... layoffs happen ... homelessness ... even the working poor ... anything can happen to cause a need for assistance. The Comfort Food Pantry feeds approximately 130 families each month. 

The Comfort Table serves meals each week to approximately 75 people in-house and to go.  We send food home with approximately 50 students at Comfort elementary each week via our Backpack Program so they will be fed on the weekends.  As our mission grows, so does our determination to ensure that we can feed the hungry of Comfort and surrounding areas.

Comfort Food Pantry eligibility is income-based, and Comfort Table is open to all.  Our community meal focus is on seniors, teachers, first responders and anyone that wants a meal.  The Table is a place to share a meal and enjoy much-needed socialization for seniors.  Meals are free, but donations are always accepted!

We treasure our partnerships with H-E-B, the San Antonio Food Bank and Hill Country Family Services. We also welcome volunteers to assist at the Pantry, the Table and to unload trucks. Donations of nonperishable food items are always welcome!
