Amazing Grace Food Pantry continues to increase the amount of nutritious food to more and more families in Collin County. In June, over 62,000 pounds of food was distributed. With healthy fresh produce choices like watermelon, potatoes, carrots and broccoli to name a few. This Tuesday was no different. Volunteers served 73 families, including 3 from Garland. While we serve Collin County, no one is turned away. We provide information about resources closer to home and assist them with their needs for the week… just in case.
The first of the month is a special time for us. We get to provide clients with cleaning and hygiene products, along with other monthly non-food items. These products are always in short supply, but are a welcomed addition as they make affording bills, mortgages and other expenses easier for our clients. In addition to providing monthly support for the pantry, donating cleaning and hygiene products is another great way to help.

Jessi and her girls take time out of their busy summer to volunteer every Tuesday to serve clients. They fill boxes full with meats, ice cream, coffee, pet food and any hygiene products needed. The girls have fun decorating the client boxes with designs and smiley faces to bring cheer to struggling families each week.
