Pantry Update June 2017

Amazing Grace Food Pantry had the privilege to serve 247 families in June, that’s up 20% from last year. We’re now able to supply more nutritious food to over 1000 people each month with frequent deliveries of fresh fruit and veggies. Tell your neighbors about Amazing Grace Food Pantry – sometimes families struggle in silence.

New Building Update: Framing is 85% complete. Electrical is 80% complete. We started plumbing as well. The new building is on track to open this Fall. Stay tuned for more updates!

To help with the Building Hope project, a new 3,200 sqft building to better serve the growing number of food insecure families in North Texas, we’re currently in need of donations toward the following items:

Shelving $6,000.00
Client Reception Chairs $1,000.00

We also still have a commercial freezer in need of a new compressor at $850.00. A volunteer with a refrigeration background has already pledged to install it.

 

AGFP Pantry Client Lesa

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for Amazing Grace Food Pantry.  The past year has been tough on my household. Due to illness, I was forced to retire early.  I’ve accumulated a lot of medical bills due to several trips to the hospital and ongoing treatments. The generous donations from the pantry enables my family to have regular nutritious meals.

Thank you Amazing Grace.

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!

Please share this and our other posts on your Facebook timeline, tweet it out on Twitter or forward via email. Many people looking to help or looking for help don't even know that ours and other pantries exist. Let others know there's help for them out there!
