Neil and Joan are busy building client boxes. This is a fun job at Amazing Grace Food Pantry – trying to fit as much as we can into these boxes to distribute. Each client receives 2 very full boxes with an average of 105 pounds distributed each week, plus any produce of their choice in our self-shopping area. Sometime we even have paper products to add – a real treat for families struggling to make ends meet.
We’re grateful to North Texas Food Bank who provides most of our fresh produce – items that are not always affordable but so very important for a healthy lifestyle. When families are in poverty and not using a local food pantry, on average, they don’t consume the recommended amount of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products, and they consume fewer servings of these nutritious foods than other households.
Thank you to all who make this ministry possible! Your prayers, time and donations are putting smiles on faces of thousands of people. The need is growing as economic uncertainly impacts all of us. Tell your friends, family members and coworkers about Amazing Grace Food Pantry.
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.

Volunteering at Amazing Grace Food Pantry has been very gratifying to me. In fact, I often gain more than I give, by allowing me to contribute to a worthwhile cause, I help people in need.
It has also given me the opportunity to communicate and build bonds with others while also working on my self-confidence. Amazing Grace has taught me the value of orderliness and hard work. I see so much food being distributed and yet they still manage to pull it all together and get the job done. It has been a pleasure volunteering at Amazing Grace Food Pantry, I appreciate the opportunity to serve.
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!
