The rain slowed guests down a little last week, but families made their way in to gather groceries from Amazing Grace Food Pantry. Over 27,000 pounds of food distributed this week alone!

Barb is among our volunteers that finds joy in stocking the client shopping area with lots of nutritional goodies along with some sweet treats. In addition to receiving a weekly box of nutritious staples and meats, clients “shop” the front area for dairy products, produce, bread, drink items and a selection of other products. This hybrid system allows us to ensure everyone gets what they need as well as a fair share of wants… just like at the grocery store.

Last week there was an abundance of summer squash, onions, zucchini, limes, oranges, apples, tomatoes and avocados. Last month we were very low on frozen meat, but we were able to load up everyone’s freezer this time around.

In fact, large families received up to 150 pounds due to the abundance!

Thanks to North Texas Food Bank and individuals who donate, we ordered a variety of meat at 14 cents per pound. What a blessing YOU are!

I have been going to the Amazing Grace Fellowship Food Pantry in St. Paul, Texas for over a year and they have been helping me through a very difficult time in my life. I had two operations and three trips to the emergency room in the past year nearly taking my monthly income from Social Security trying to pay them. If it weren’t for the Amazing Grace Fellowship Food Pantry in St. Paul I would nearly have starved for many months. They have been very courteous, kind and helpful to all who go there and I don’t know what I would do without them. I feel that they are God sent to help many people like me get through hard times in their lives. Their office area is very small and often we have to wait outside the front door in the rain or cold to be served.

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!
