Innovation helps us Meet the Need

May 24th, 2022|Categories: Latest News|

Amazing Grace Food Pantry continues to improve processes while the number of families we serve continue to increase each week.

We recently adopted a barcode system that allows clients to “sign in”, minimizing touch. Clients present their pantry card and within minutes their 2 boxes are customized and headed to their cars. The process is streamlined and easy to use. Our clients like that service is quick without sacrificing the customization or amount of food provided, plus we’re saving trees by not making copies of sign in sheets – that’s a plus!

This new pantry feature allows more than twice as many families to receive food each hour. These types of efficiency increases are vital as the number of families in need in Collin and Rockwall counties are challenging our ability to serve. We welcome the challenge, but our facility, resources and, most importantly, volunteers are routinely put to the test.

Be it barcode cards, tablets, our new intercom system or the next innovation that helps us help more people, we rely upon YOU to help us meet that need. Visit our Volunteer page to sign up or Contact Us to arrange a tour. You can also visit our Donate page for a one-time gift or to set up a recurring monthly donation. We look forward to showing you how large your impact really is!

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!

Meet Susan.

I struggle to feed my family of 4 and am so thankful that AGFP provides a good, healthy variety of fresh fruit and vegetables.  The people here are so nice and helpful!  We also appreciate the pet food available.
