Operation Feeding Temple is a non-profit organization that has a mission to assist area food pantries in Temple, Texas in the organizing and conducting of food drives, fundraisers and benefits, as well as, gathering, storing and distributing food, clothing, and cash donations for the benefit of individuals and families in need.
All donations we receive are equally split between our four pantry partners: The Love of Christ Pantry, Churches Touching Lives for Christ, Taylor's Valley Baptist Church and St. Vincent de Paul of Temple.
Our board of directors is made up of community professionals, with different backgrounds, all with a heart to serve others. We are happy to have the leadership of Derrel Thompson, Tom Henderson, Lisle Meeker, Ken Valka, Bridget Whitaker, AC Blunt, Caitlin West, Darlene Alfred and Michelle Clemens. We are a 100% volunteer-based organization.
In 2018 we formed a non-profit organization, Operation Feeding Temple. We grew from hosting one food drive a year, Food for Families, to now hosting two big food drives plus a handful of smaller drives a year. Our food drives include, Food for Families, Friends Feeding Friends, Virtual Food Drives and Stamp Out Hunger!
