Our Programs

 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.

Each year we host a Thanksgiving Giveaway where volunteers and community sponsors distribute complete Thanksgiving meals.

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.

Drive-Thru Service

Wednesday-Saturday at our Plano location serves families with dignity and integrity.

We ended 2020 with a clear vision. We know our mission this year is even greater.

Our message is it's ok, not to be ok.  That's why we are here. The pandemic forced Minnie's Food Pantry to restructure logistically how and where we serve our community.  We began to work six days a week to ensure families had access to healthy meals.

From single parents trying to feed their children to business executives who have been laid off, the face of hunger is changing daily. However, Minnie's Food Pantry remains a source of not only food but hope for all those we serve. We treat our clients with dignity and respect as they receive healthy meals, fresh meats, and fresh produce to prepare meals at their homes for their families.

If you need food click here, we are delighted to serve you.
