This week 144 families visited Amazing Grace Food Pantry for lots of nutritional food, fresh fruit and veggies. Faithful volunteers greeted clients warmly and carried their multiple boxes to their cars. Thanks to the surrounding communities who pitch in with monthly donations, 593 tummies are full this week.
Your monthly donation of $28 buys 200 lbs of nutritious food for those struggling to put food on the table. Sometimes these situations are temporary due to recent job loss, medical bills or auto repair. Some are stuck in a bad situation and see no hope. Amazing Grace Food Pantry strives to kindle hope in the hearts of the financially weary buy providing groceries, saving families hundreds of dollars each month and providing the nutrition they may not spend money on themselves. This goes a long way to improved mental and physical health.
New Building Update:
We’ve started the framing inside. As soon as framing is completed, will install power panel and run electrical. The 3 A/C units will cost $16,000. Want to sponsor this project? Check out the website for ways to help!

Life is hard, we want to help soften any part of these families struggles.

I have volunteered at other pantries in Collin County in the past, but Amazing Grace Food Pantry ranks #1 in my book. They provide good food choices, food that people would want to buy for themselves if they could. The vibe here is awesome! It’s got a good family vibe, everyone is so nice. Reggie greets everyone with a big smile and makes clients feel welcomed and unashamed of their current financial struggle. This pantry has really motivated me to Pay It Forward in 2017!
