Shout of appreciation to 5 Loaves Food Pantry who shared the love and supplied produce when our delivery didn’t come in this week.
Special thanks to the many volunteers from Murphy Road Baptist Church and Church Eleven32 who served at Amazing Grace Food Pantry this week serving the less fortunate. Collin County Volunteers are the Best! With their help, over 16,000 pounds of food was distributed, along with fresh produce!
Fresh produce is such a blessing to those who cannot afford healthy dietary choices. This week, families loaded up with all they wanted of potatoes, carrots and broccoli.
I started coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry in 2016. My wife and I are retired and made ends meet ok until my 35 year old son had a near fatal car accident that left him mentally and physically handicapped. We took him into our home along with his two teenage kids. Our Social Security income isn’t enough to sustain a family of 5 with special needs. Amazing Grace Food Pantry provides nutritious food to last the week. I’m able to come every week for fresh produce and groceries that I couldn’t otherwise afford. Everyone here is hospitable and treats everyone with dignity and respect.
