Minnie's Food Pantry rolls out the red carpet for everyone - the people they serve, the volunteers that donate their time and the donors who donate food and money. They are led by the fabulous Dr. Cheryl 'Action' Jackson who's passion for serving is contagious. The team ensures that every person who walks through the doors of the building are served with a smile and a hug. The now infamous chant of 'If you can't feed a hundred people, feed just one' says it all in a nutshell. No matter how big or small the difference is...they encourage everyone to just make A DIFFERENCE. And Minnie's does just that for thousands of families every year.
My experience at Minnies Food Pantry was heart warming. The staff was well organized and the need is great. Minnies Food Pantry is fulfilling a great need in our community. They are able to make a little go a long long way and I was thankful for being a part of the experience.
I was very impressed! Minnies is well run and very organized. Great people running a great organization for a good cause. They never turn anybody in need away.
Minnie's is an amazing organization. They are super respectful of the clients who come in for help. Very personal with each one. The amount of food that goes in and out of the food pantry is both awesome and humbling.
A group of us from work volunteered one morning to help process incoming donations and prepare food for distribution to families in need. I was not only amazed with the commitment and organization of the staff and other volunteers but with the real need in my own community. That morning we served 1,295 people representing 2,247 individual family members and distributed 47,335 pounds of food. What a great experience!
I volunteered recently as Minnie's, having had no previous experience or knowledge of the organization, and I was blown away. Minnie's is truly unique in its endeavors to make each person walking through the door feel special, rather than ashamed as many feel when receiving food at other places. The red carpet, the smiles on everyone's faces, and the overall enthusiasm create a welcoming environment for both customers and volunteers. The organization is extremely organized and the facilities were spotless. I left that day feeling like I had truly made a difference. Minnie's is a wonderful organization with great values. I encourage those who are interested to donate to Minnie's and take the time to volunteer to see just what an impact your donations have on so many lives.
It was an amazing and humbling opportunity to help a lending hand at Minnie's. Our group was so excited to volunteer, and was so moved by the joy and gratitude of the entire staff. The staff changes lives on the daily with such sincerity and gratitude, and to be able share in this experience with them was wonderful. The staff was able to share stories about their outreach and how much they've grown, and the passion everyone shared was astounding. Can't wait to help out again!
I volunteered for the organization in September, 2015 and was very impressed with the way the volunteers were utilized. The morning began with training and information about the organization and then we were split into groups. I assisted with filling food boxes for distribution. Everyone (volunteers & staff) was extremely helpful, upbeat and friendly. That on top of the fact that everything was so well organized made me feel like I had really made a contribution. I have volunteered for many organizations in my lifetime, but this was one of the most positive & rewarding experiences I have had. I will definitely do it again!
Minnie's Food Pantry is one of the greatest acts of giving I have personally experienced. It goes beyond the walls of giving and feeding but has touched the hearts of every person that volunteers and or donates. I have personally witnessed life changing events in the lives of many of the people fed by Minnies Food Pantry.
