Reviews for Minnies Food Pantry Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

What a remarkable experience! Our group was so excited to volunteer and were so moved by the experience! Cheryl and her team changes lives in such a sincere and heartfelt way. Cheryl shared stories from the heart about starting Minnie's and how fortunate she is to continue it. Her passion is astounding. We were moved to tears. We felt so fortunate to help touch lives. Volunteering was so fun and we hope to be regulars there.

I was able to work as an intern this summer as part of the Bank of America Student Leaders program, and I will never forget my experience. Unlike many nonprofits that treat their recipients as recipients, Minnie's treated everyone like they were part of their big family. Everyday I received a hug from Leroy and everyday I left feeling more and more loved. I can't wait to come back!

What we like most about Minnies is the way they treat the people. Everyone is treated with respect and compassion.

I have been volunteering at Minnies for about one year. I just love the way the recipients are treated with respect and dignity. Very family friendly making it easily accessible to those with children, who receive a goody bag when with their parents. It is the small touches that make these children feel important and loved! Everyone is greeted at the door and welcome to the coffee bar and a snack while waiting in the comfortable lobby. Thank you Minnies for providing this service in our community.

I saw a feature on Food Network on " Hunger in America" and Minnie's Food Pantry was one organization that was featured. I couldn't believe the hunger need in my own city and immediately knew I had found the place I had been looking for to volunteer. My first day at Minnie's was the most positive, upbeat experience I have had in a long time! All the volunteers are so excited to be there and I was amazed at the amount and quality of food they provided families each day! I had the pleasure of getting to meet some of the families, serve them coffee, water and snacks and occasionally to hear their story. These people were treated with such love, kindness, and respect by everyone they came in contact with and I am proud to say I am now a member of Teamminnies!

When I was in 9th grade my mom nagged me to volunteer all the time to get hours for college so we chose a location relative to our home which ended up to be Minnie's. I'm moving on to my junior year in high school and I'm still here volunteering. Minnie's has an environment that draws people back to volunteer, the energetic and friendly environment really helps work get done.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change it

I first found out about Minnie's pantry when my mom lost her job and was struggling on putting food on the table for me and my brother. She applied for food stamps but got denied, luckily he found Minnies food pantry and we started going here every Sunday for food plus even volunteering then getting the food at the end. I have found this pantry way better than any other I've been to and I'm always willing to volunteer at anytime. Me and my mom Isn't struggling now but i still come to volunteer because I've always felt good helping my community, and meeting new friends with similar interests of why they're here.

Minnie's Food Pantry is an amazing place! They make everyone that walks through the door feel like a celebrity by rolling out the red carpet and serving everyone with a smile. This is a fun place to volunteer and really makes you feel like you are making a difference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more donations so we could help more people in need!
