food pantry #10

Here is a picture of a shelf in our food pantry stocked with soups. With so many people and families coming through our front room every day, this doesn’t last long.  Every day we give away what you provide. Thank you!

 We see people everyday who don’t have enough food for their family.   It is our conviction and heart that no one should have to be hungry in our community. Because you provide, we can give.  Because so many have asked, here are some suggested ways to help: 

Food Provided Daily

We provide food six days a week, to families in need – and any other time we are here when there is an emergency. We provide each family enough food to last between 3 to 5 days, based on their family size. Your gifts of food makes such a difference.

 Rice Beans Peanut Butter
Powdered Milk Breakfast Cereal Jelly or Jams
Canned Vegetables Canned Fruits Pasta
Canned Soups Crackers Tomato Sauce
Macaroni & Cheese Juice Bottles & Boxes Ensure Drinks
Hamburger Tuna Helper Baking Items
Four, Sugar, etc. Snack Items Bread, all types
Desserts Condiments Canned meats
Tuna, Chicken Vienna Sausages Spam, etc.

Food for the Thanksgiving Season

Last year we helped 6,000 families (25,017 people). It took 5,200 turkeys to make that work for our community. Your support with Thanksgiving food makes such a difference. Thank you.

 Turkeys Rolls Macaroni & cheese
Boxed/Mashed Potatoes Tuna Peanut Butter
Canned Sweet Potatoes Canned Fruits Vegetables
Beans & Rice Stuffing mix Pie Crust

Food Bags

If you are looking for a way that your group can contribute, “Food Bags” are great for schools, corporate volunteers, scout troops, civic clubs and more. Here is a suggested approach:

 4 cans of vegetables  1 snack 2 cans of meat (chicken, tuna, etc)
 Packaged dinner item  1 can of fruit 1 can of soup
 Handful of crackers  1 tube of crackers 1 can of tomato sauce
 Condiment  1 drink item (juice, etc) Baking item (flour, sugar, etc.)
 Peanut Butter  Breakfast item Jelly
1 sliced bread  2 additional types of bread 1 dessert item

 If you have a food drive and need us to come pick it up, please give us a call at 817-277-6620. Otherwise, please bring your food donation by our offices anytime between 7 and 7  Monday through Saturday, or from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday.  

Your generosity constantly amazes us. We are grateful for you!
