What an Amazing community we have in Collin County!
An unexpected blessing drove up to Amazing Grace Food Pantry – a TRUCK LOAD of food! New Hope Christian Church dropped off over 1800 pounds of cereal, soup and canned fruits and vegetables. The items that kids really enjoy like chicken noodle soup and Captain Crunch cereal has depleted down to cream of mushroom soup and Shredded Wheat cereal. Thanks to New Hope, our client kiddos will have some of their favorites at the breakfast and dinner table again. We can imagine their big smiles now!
Looking for a way to help others in need? We’re collecting items for Thanksgiving meals to distribute the middle of November. We’ve got turkeys coming, but need side dish ingredients:
Stove Top Stuffing
Canned Green Beans
Amazing Grace Food Pantry is exclusively a volunteer organization, relying upon the talent and generosity of community members to procure, sort and distribute over 30 TONS of food every month to area families. This monumental undertaking is only possible due to the altruism and support received each and every week from people just like you.
- Do you have some free time on your hands?
- Do you enjoy helping those in need?
- Do you want to give back in some way that really changes the quality of life for someone?
We also welcome volunteer groups! If your church, youth or corporate group would like to schedule a day to volunteer as a team building exercise, or to regularly adopt group-size tasks (e.g. yard work, improvements, cleanup, etc.), we’d love to hear from you!

Since Amazing Grace Food Pantry started it’s ministry in 2007, we’ve opened each client day with prayer. The clients that arrive early love to join in. Prayer requests are mentioned, answered prayers are spoken with praise and often shared testimonies like this one.
Fani had a huge praise that she gave to the waiting room after opening prayer. Fani was the client who received a new microwave from volunteer Preston from Church 11:32. She was so excited to tell everyone how God has been working in her life because she has been giving Him the praise for the little things provided to her. That woman was on fire for the Lord! She got a nice round of applause after her 3 minute testimony.
