How it works

If You Can't Feed 100 people, then Feed Just One. $1 provides 3 meals!

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.

Sponsor a Truck

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.

Minnie’s on the Go

Hunger is everywhere, so are we. We deliver food to senior citizens, veterans, and day laborers.

Our 2022 Thanksgiving Giveaway was a huge success!


Minnie's Food Pantry hosted our 15th Annual Feeding 10,000 Thanksgiving giveaway.  We  provided complete thanksgiving meals (including a turkey) to 15,337 people in North Texas!

342 volunteers came together to make the event a huge success while Emerald City Band and Paula Abdul provided LIVE entertainment for the families that were served.

On a behind the scenes note, there were 1,015 volunteers who served with us leading up to the big day to prepare as there was no shortage of work to be done.   If you can't feed 100 people, Feed Just One.
