Wylie United Methodist Church helps with Food 4 Kids

1 in 6 children in America worry about their next meal. Hunger deprives kids of more than food, it also impacts their mental and physical health. Sometimes parents aren’t home to fix that all important breakfast, lunch or snack for the kids. That’s why Food 4 Kids bags are provided – easy to fix meals and snacks to help the kiddos with food security.

Our Food 4 Kids Partner Team from Wylie United Methodist Church finished this school year with a total of 3,796 bags – wow!

During the school year, they collect, bag and deliver weekend Food 4 Kids bags to area schools each week. We’re grateful for their dedication to this weekly blessing to over 130 kids each week.

With schools on summer break, Amazing Grace Food Pantry will provide these weekend Food 4 Kids bags to 480 kids each week.

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.

This single mother escaped human trafficking a few years ago. Kimmy and the kids lived in a shelter until she found a full time job. She still struggles to make ends meet and provide nutritional meals for her 3 children ages 9, 11, 12. She and the kids love coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry where there is no judgement, just lots of love and nutritional food.

The noticeable difference in the kids attitude and helpfulness stems from good food and good neighbors like this pantry helping them through the tough times.

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!
