Leander Church of Christ maintains an incredible pantry called Brighter Days Food Pantry. We stock canned goods and general grocery items and occasionally we have personal care items. We try to maintain healthy food options. When available we have fresh products such as meats, dairy products, and fresh vegetables and fruits.

We are partners with the Central Texas Food Bank, Keep Austin Fed, Trader Joe's, Starbucks, Kohl's, Costco, Randall's, and 365 Whole Foods. We are blessed to assist 240 families (or over 400 people) per week! We have one of the few evening pantries in the entire Austin area and it is open every Wednesday from 5:30PM - 7:00PM. You are welcome to come as often as you need. We operate by curbside pickup only.

Food Pantry FAQs

Despensa de Alimentos FAQs

What do I need to bring?
Our Food Pantry serves only individuals and families in the following zip codes - 78641, 78613, 78642, 78645, and 78646. If you come to the food pantry for the first time, you may be asked to provide some form of identification or utility bill that shows you live in one of those zip codes.
Do you give out diapers?
We are a proud partner of the Austin Diaper Bank and provide diapers and wipes on Wednesday nights. Sometimes we are able to provide other baby needs, such as formula, but it is not guaranteed.

If you need adult diapers, we give them out during our HOPE Program on the third Tuesday of every month from 1:30-2:15. This program is for those age 55+
How does the curbside pickup work?
When you enter the church's parking lot, use the far western entrance. Parking lot attendants will direct you to a row, where you will drive up and wait until it is your turn. Once they direct you, you will circle around to a check-in attendant, who will get your information and what you need. You will then drive to another area to receive your food.  Simply unlock your vehicle and workers will put boxes and bags of groceries in your car.  If you request diapers, you will be sent to another lane to receive those along with your food.  Once they are done loading everything up for you, drive around and exit the parking lot using the eastern exit.

We give out food until we run out of everything for the week, which is usually up to around 240 prepared boxes. Once we reach capacity, we close off the west entrance.

We cannot serve you if you do not come in a vehicle.
¿Qué necesito traer?
Nuestra despensa de alimentos atiende solo a personas y familias en los siguientes códigos postales: 78641, 78613, 78642, 78645 y 78646. Si viene a la despensa de alimentos por primera vez, es posible que se le solicite que proporcione algún tipo de identificación o factura de servicios públicos. eso muestra que vives en uno de esos códigos postales.
¿Regalas pañales?
Somos un orgulloso socio del Austin Diaper Bank y proporcionamos pañales y toallitas los miércoles por la noche. A veces podemos satisfacer otras necesidades del bebé, como fórmula, pero no está garantizado.

Si necesita pañales para adultos, los entregamos durante nuestro Programa HOPE el tercer martes de cada mes de 1:30 a 2:15. Este programa es para mayores de 55 años.
¿Cómo funciona la recogida en la acera?
Cuando ingrese al estacionamiento de la iglesia, use la entrada del extremo occidental. Los asistentes del estacionamiento lo dirigirán a una fila, donde conducirá y esperará hasta que sea su turno. Una vez que lo indiquen, se dirigirá a un asistente de check-in, quien obtendrá su información y lo que necesita. Luego conducirá a otra área para recibir su comida. Simplemente desbloquee su vehículo y los trabajadores colocarán cajas y bolsas de comestibles en su automóvil. Si solicita pañales, lo enviarán a otro carril para recibirlos junto con su comida. Una vez que hayan terminado de cargar todo para usted, conduzca y salga del estacionamiento por la salida este.

Repartimos comida hasta que nos quedamos sin todo para la semana, que suele ser unas 240 cajas preparadas. Una vez que alcancemos la capacidad, cerramos la entrada oeste.

No podemos atenderle si no viene en vehículo.
Brighter Days Food Pantry is an equal opportunity provider.
As a part of our Brighter Days Ministries, we also operate a Clothes Closet. We provide new and gently used clothes, shoes, and jackets to men, woman, and children. We serve our community 3 Saturdays per calendar year, usually in January, April, and August from 10am – 1pm. Before each giveaway, the date will be posted on the marquee out front of the building. We also advertise on Facebook and the Nextdoor app. Occasionally on Wednesday evenings during the Food Pantry, we give our overstock clothing out. We are very thankful that God provides our needs. We are blessed with an abundance of donations from individuals and our members here.

If you would like to donate to the Brighter Days Clothes Closet, please bring donations to the office at 300 Crystal Falls Parkway in Leander between 10am-3pm. For questions about large quantities (more than 2-3 bags) or frequent donations, please call the church office.
We appreciate everyone who makes this ministry possible, including all of our wonderful volunteers!

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-based support group for all of us with hurts, habits and hang-ups from various events that have happened in our lives.  There are others that share our pain and experiences.  We celebrate that there is hope & recovery!

Celebrate Recovery is not just for those struggling with alcohol, drugs or substance abuse.  It is for all of us that battle depression, issues with food, self-control, anger, guilt, self-confidence, relationships, sexual addiction or abuse, co-dependency, trust...any sin, hurt, hang-up or habit that is holding you back from being the amazing person God created you to be.
