Many people may not know it, but NTX Community Food Pantry has a 12-year history in The Colony. We began as a small church food pantry, then became part of another non-profit, and in 2017, we obtained our own non-profit status. In all that time, we have seen the struggles that many individuals and families have, to just put food on the table. We provide food, build relationships, and give people encouragement, hope and resources. It has always been the mission of the food pantry to come along side to help our neighbor and extend grace and dignity to each person.
We live in a wonderful area. Things are booming, but not for everyone. There is so much need, and the problem of hunger is often a hidden one. Families are welcome to visit the pantry every week, if needed. In the month of April, our numbers reached 489 families. However, our area is also full of people, businesses, churches, and organizations who really care about food insecurity. We are thankful for the donations of time, food, and money that help us continue to do what we do. Our volunteers are fantastic, and many have been with the food pantry for years. They help make it a welcoming place to walk in to.
