Amazing Grace Food Pantry closed 2017 books showing 32% more people served than in 2016 and a lot more food distributed. Between North Texas Food Bank and your donations, over 592,000 pounds of nutritional food was distributed to families in need in Collin County and surrounding areas. Over 13,000 boxes of food were carried to families cars this year.

Thank you to the many individuals and organizations that had a part, either with volunteering, dropping off food or regular financial support – YOU made the difference in 3,271 people’s lives this year!

 

New Building Update: What a year 2017 has been! December 2016 we were thrilled to have the slab poured for the new building. This December, and throughout 2017, volunteer teams rocked it! Interior walls are painted, FRP 90% done, walk-in cooler is nearly assembled and plumbing is near complete… we finally have a working restroom!

Thank you volunteers for your dedication and hard work putting this building together. It won’t be long before we’re able to serve clients from this spacious and safer facility. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements.

Want to help? GREAT! Your continued financial support makes this pantry possible. Visit our donate page to arrange a recurring monthly donation or to give a one-time gift.

 

January is National Soup Month

Hunger doesn’t stop at Christmas. January is a rough month for those struggling to make ends meet with the higher heating bills. Drop off canned soup any Tuesday, Friday or Saturday 9am-11am to warm hearts and Fight Hunger Together!

Karen discussed with me about one year ago the need to get involved in a community service activity. We have been retired a few years and needed to do some volunteering. Karen looked for a pantry to volunteer in and selected Amazing Grace because of the people, the process, and how it helps those in our local area, where she and I live. After a few months I decided to join her one day and am really glad I did. Neither of us had a lot growing up, and there were times that my family when I was a child had no food and we relied on assistance. We discovered what a tremendous group of people have accomplished through this organization toward providing meals to those in need whether it be long term or short term. The process is very solid and we are proud to be a part of such an organization.

Jesus teaches us that we are to serve and we are to feed people, both physically and spiritually. We have made many new friends by volunteering at Amazing Grace and have discovered that regardless of where we are in our own walk, our mission is clear. That is provide a means for people to obtain food where a means may not otherwise exist. The leadership of Amazing Grace exemplifies what Jesus taught and we are proud to be a part of an organization that is so focused on defeating hunger in our county.
