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 company did a volunteer project here and it was such an amazing experience! Very well run and organized. Clients were so appreciative of our help. We will definitely be back to Minnie's in the future.

I have been involved with a number of non-profit agencies during my life and I found Minnie's Pantry to be one of the most well-organized, efficient and extremely friendly groups with which I have ever worked. The volunteers and staff were fabulous and so appreciative of our help. They treated everyone who came in with respect and did whatever they could to help meet their needs . And the positive energy was absolutely contagious. I look forward to working with them again.

The people at this charity are very supportive and definitely showed that they care for people that need food. I had the chance to ride to different stores to pick up food and then load it up at the food pantry. Everyone was friendly and open to all of the support from a variety of volunteers, including families and corporate groups.

Making a difference one meal at a time! Our organization relies on volunteering....exposing our staff to what it means to volunteer started our "Giving Back" initiative. Minnies was one of the causes we chose to support. It was an amazing opportunity for us. As a team we headed to Minnies and walked away with a life changing experience. In July, Minnies was able to provide 1,014 families with food.
Number of people in those families: 3,217
Total Pounds of food given: 47,279 pounds
Total Number of volunteer who put smiles on Families faces:431
Be a part of the solution!

Minnie's food pantry does far more than hand out food to the needy. They take care of their patron's emotional needs as well by showing respect, welcoming with hugs and smiles and offering bottled water while they wait and giving them a red carpet welcome. They offer internal programs for their clients including classes for cooking healthy to balancing your checking account to having computers available for those who need to use them. Minnie's reaches the community outside its doors by having programs for taking food to some of the Senior Living facilities, as well as having a sack lunch program for homeless and day workers. When you volunteer you are met with people who are full of energy and excitement and are glad you are there and no matter what task you are given they make you feel appreciated and you leave with a feeling of gratitude and appreciation and can't wait to go back to volunteer again. Minnie's is not there to hand out, they strive to lend a helping hand to help people up.

I have been so impressed with this organization. They harness the passion of the local community with organized volunteer events, and, most importantly, they treat everyone who comes to them for assistance with respect.

Two cans of corn and 3.4 million meals later
My name is Cheryl Jackson, I supported the organization called Minnie's Food Pantry because my sister was talking to me and I found out that she only had on can of corn in her house and when I told my husband about it, he said if I asked her for it, she would give it to us. I begged him not to but then we agreed if she brought it, we would give her our savings which at the time was $500 ( which ironically is the amount of your 1st place prize). The back story is that there was a time when I couldn't feed my family of four but then times got better and my husband and I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel BUT to know that my only sister needed food for her family just devastated me. Well, my sister did bring that can of corn to me and we gave her the money. Years later our father would pass away and I needed to find a way to honor my mother so the charity I gave to was the one I started, it's called Minnie's Food pantry and it is named after our Mother, Minnie Ewing who passed away this year on Mothers Day weekend. We are still feeding people in her name, we recently gave food for 10,000 people for Thanksgiving so this contest would help us keep the mission going. To give corn that we didn't have to over 300,000 people and counting means more to me and my sister now that our mother is going. Minnie's Pantry literally rolls out the red carpet for people to get a healthy meal. Giving is the fabric of our family, from generation to generation.
