The Amazing Grace Food Pantry volunteers have a special friendship in serving others. Murad, who volunteers on Fridays, invited us to his home for a cooking class. He and his wife demonstrated making baklava and samosas… just in time for adding these to our Thanksgiving menu!
Speaking of September… did you know that September is Hunger Action Month? Amazing Grace Food Pantry, along with thousands of nonprofit organizations, looks forward to North Texas Giving Day. This event allows us all to pull resources to get exposure for our organizations, gaining new support and reaching new people in the community… both those looking for help and those looking to help.
While any day is a good day to donate, 25 donors contributed $2525 to Amazing Grace Food Pantry for North Texas Giving Day. Thank you to everyone who donated. We look forward to turning your generosity into full bellies and smiling faces!
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.

I wanted to tell you how impressed and inspired by everyone there. The work could be pretty demanding yet the team there returned week after week to serve those in need. The organization and flow of everything was so smooth. I really appreciated the time of prayer as well. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a part. I really enjoyed the work and the people. You all make me think of the song that talks about being the hands and feet of Jesus. Hopefully I’ll be able to serve again with y’all when my schedule is not so demanding.
““Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:37-40 NIV
