Your Nonprofit Food Pantry In Tool, Texas

The Community Food Pantry in Tool exists to extend a helping hand by providing nurturing support of body and soul to those in need. We provide food, support, and love for those in our community dealing with difficult and stressful life circumstances. We support individuals and families in addition to providing extra help for Seniors. 

Background & History

The Community Food Pantry in Tool, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, has provided supplemental food, support, and education to families in the Cedar Creek Lake area in Henderson County, Texas for over 30 years. We began operating out of a small closet in 1983. Driven by need and with Community support, we distributed 85,153 lbs. of food to 3,255 families and 9,827 children, adults and seniors in 2021.


The work we do allows us to learn more about our client’s needs; we have found that most face numerous obstacles.

In our quest to help address these issues, we offer:

  • SNAP application assistance
  • Healthy Cooking education classes
  • Facilitation of supplemental support for utility needs (with support from the Cedar Creek Lake United Methodist Church, St. Jude Catholic Church & First Baptist Church of Tool
  • Available support awareness for additional Housing, Utility & Medical assistance through State Agencies


Any time commitment by a volunteer makes a difference in someone’s life.


Monday – Wednesday – Friday:
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.



It is our goal and our mission to provide all the necessary support to empower their existence. Our Volunteers are caring individuals who are ready to reach to assist them and discuss possible avenues of support. We have helped many receive additional benefits through SNAP and other sources of assistance within our community through this method.


If anyone is willing to help others through donations, we provide you the opportunity.
