Stocking the Food Pantry

May 13th, 2019|Latest News|

The rain slowed guests down a little last week, but families made their way in to gather groceries from Amazing Grace Food Pantry. Over 27,000 pounds of food distributed this week alone!

Barb is among our volunteers that finds joy in stocking the client shopping area with lots of nutritional goodies along with some sweet treats. In addition to receiving a weekly box of nutritious staples and meats, clients “shop” the front area for dairy products, produce, bread, drink items and a selection of other products. This hybrid system allows us to ensure everyone gets what they need as well as a fair share of wants… just like at the grocery store.

Last week there was an abundance of summer squash, onions, zucchini, limes, oranges, apples, tomatoes and avocados. Last month we were very low on frozen meat, but we were able to load up everyone’s freezer this time around.

In fact, large families received up to 150 pounds due to the abundance!

Thanks to North Texas Food Bank and individuals who donate, we ordered a variety of meat at 14 cents per pound. What a blessing YOU are!

Our family wishes to extend our greatest thanks and appreciation for the effort made to serve the community with a food pantry.

Over the years, we have benefited greatly with your help in providing food for us. With our limited resources it was very difficult for us until we discovered the help you were giving to the community and only God knows the amount of personal time and spirit you have put into this.

Again, we thank you for all the help and hope that God will bless you and your families as you continue to serve with the smiling faces that greet everyone walking in your door.

Take the time to read some of the testimonials from clients and volunteers on our website. Volunteer or donate this year. It will bless you!

Please share this and our other posts on your Facebook timeline, tweet it out on Twitter or forward via email. Many people looking to help or looking for help don't even know that ours and other pantries exist. Let others know there's help for them out there!
