Arboretum location only, 10001 Research Blvd. (183) between Golfsmith and Target, next to GNC and Jersey Mike's Subs. Please call first, 512-346-5959, to make sure there is some surplus and as a courtesy heads up. Best time is around 8 p.m. Friday, but Snap will hold the food overnight if you call Friday night asking for a Saturday morning pickup between 8-11 a.m.

Enter through front door and identify yourself as KAF volunteer picking up surplus. Employee will guide you back to walk-in cooler door. Food will be sorted with the most perishable food on the upper shelf to help us manage the food supply. All food on BOTTOM two shelves is ours to take. If it's too much to take, start at the top and leave what you need from the lower shelf for the next run. Please message site coordinator or post on Facebook volunteer page if you leave any food behind.

Drop off up to 50 meals at Casa Marianella 821 Gunter St. between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. any day of the week. This emergency shelter for adult immigrants houses 35, but often serves more than that.

Drop off up to 50 meals at Posada Esperanza immigrant women's shelter near Givens Park (5104 Rainbow Ridge Cir Austin TX 78721). Knock on the door and when answered say you have a food donation, which you can leave on the kitchen table. Capacity: about 50 Snap meals
