Thanksgiving is Approaching Quickly! And We Need Your Help!
With families already reaching out concerned about having a turkey and all the trimmings for the upcoming holiday season, Minnie's Food Pantry is beginning to gather items for our Annual Thanksgiving Giveaway.

As the number of families in need of food assistance continues to rise, we expect nothing less during the holiday season. Right now, we are forecasting to serve 2,500 families across North Texas, providing each with a turkey and all the side items needed to prepare complete Thanksgiving meals for their loved ones. We can use your help to begin collecting these items to ensure that no family in need goes without. Please check out a list of items to be included in each of the holiday boxes. Items can be dropped off anytime we are open: Wednesday-Saturday 8AM-12PM. If you are interested in hosting a holiday food drive, please contact us so we can schedule a date and time for you to come by and pick up Minnie's Collection Boxes!
Due to COVID19, Minnie's Food Pantry will STILL be hosting our annual giveaway but we will be operating with a drive thru service to help limit exposure and maintain a safe environment for clients, staff and volunteers!! Fear not, we will continue serving with the same red-carpet, white glove service and as always, we will create a welcoming and warm environment for all those in attendance.
Fear NOT! There Are PLENTY of Ways to Still HELP!
(And we can certainly use it!)

As we continue to monitor the spread and affects of COVID-19, the health, safety and well-being of our neighbors and volunteers remains our first priority. The volatility of COVID-19 cases in July demonstrated that we are still very much in the waves of this pandemic. As we move into August, Minnie's Food Pantry is suspending all volunteer opportunities through the end of the year. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate these fluid and uncertain circumstances.

You still can HELP!
We have been getting so many amazing people dropping off food items for us, but just as they come in, they are disappearing even quicker. The demand for food assistance is far exceeding the supply on hand. We could absolutely use help in regards to food donations or monetary support to help us continue to keep our doors open and serve those in need here in our communities!!!!

Monetary Donation
  • Please visit our website at www.MinniesFoodPantry.org/donate to make a secure on-line donation
  • Text the word MINNIES to 41444. Every dollar = 3 meals! Please encourage friends and family to join the fight against hunger as how long we are able to keep our doors open during this time depends on assistance from our communities!

Virtual Food Drive
  • Amazon wish list has been created to help make your shopping experience that much easier, and remember when you shop AmazonSmile, Minnie's will receive a percentage back from your shopping experience.
