Amazing Grace Food Pantry Celebrates Another Milestone!

October 5th, 2021|Latest News|

We’re excited about our recent equipment addition to help provide more nutritional food to families in need.

Through the collaboration of North Texas Food Bank and Gateway Community Church, this refrigerated box truck will allow us to safely pick up Retail Rescue from area grocery stores. This is a win-win, by collecting fresh, edible food that would have otherwise gone to waste. 

This huge step forward would not be possible without the partnership of the North Texas Food Bank and area churches. We’re in this together, closing the hunger gap and building Hope for a brighter future. 

Amazing Grace Food Pantry is exclusively a volunteer organization and has been serving Collin County families for 15 years. Each year the need grows and we rely upon the talent and generosity of community members to support families in need. We’re on target to distribute 2,000,000 pounds of food this year. 

During the past 18 months, we’ve seen a huge increased need. Loss of jobs, reduced hours or loss of a loved one due to the COVID pandemic.

We distribute food for everyday meals and with Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, we’re collecting items to provide a full Holiday meal to each family. These meal items are possible with your help. Want to join the Fight Against Hunger and Build Hope? Call or visit our Volunteer and Donate pages today to see how you can help your neighbors in need.

Amazing Grace Food Pantry is exclusively a volunteer organization, relying upon the talent and generosity of community members to procure, sort and distribute over 30 TONS of food every month to area families. This monumental undertaking is only possible due to the altruism and support received each and every week from people just like you.

  • Do you have some free time on your hands?
  • Do you enjoy helping those in need?
  • Do you want to give back in some way that really changes the quality of life for someone?

We also welcome volunteer groups! If your church, youth or corporate group would like to schedule a day to volunteer as a team building exercise, or to regularly adopt group-size tasks (e.g. yard work, improvements, cleanup, etc.), we’d love to hear from you! Call (972) 292-7241 to leave a voicemail message or use use the contact form on our Volunteer page.

No time to volunteer? That’s okay, too! Visit our Donation page to arrange a monthly donation. No amount is too small!

I found out about Amazing Grace Food Pantry by googling for help in Wylie. Amazing Grace Food Pantry helps my family a lot with nutritious food. All the volunteers are polite and nice. We’ve had bad experiences at other pantries where they made me feel like I was scum because I am poor. Amazing Grace Food Pantry restored my spirit by treating me with dignity.
