Can you help us feed our community?
$1 provides 3 meals!
It takes more than food to fight hunger. We believe overall wellness begins with food and health education. Our ultimate goal is to provide programs that help families obtain long-term food security and become self sufficient. Learn more about our programs.
Volunteering with your co-workers is a great way to build camaraderie and teamwork. We welcome corporate groups of all sizes to volunteer at Minnie’s Food Pantry.
We partner with school districts to deliver food and to put pantries inside of schools. We know the importance of fighting childhood hunger.
Wednesday-Saturday at our Plano location serves families with dignity and integrity.
Hunger is everywhere, so are we. We deliver food to senior citizens, veterans, and day laborers.
