I'm college educated & was on my way to my destiny when I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. I only receive social security disability. There were times I had to choose between purchasing medicine or buying food. When I went to Minnie's food pantry, I walked the red carpet & received more than food, I received hope and love. Sometimes when you go to places they make you feel like a pauper & beggar, not here. I used to be the one giving & helping, what a blessing to find an organization that has a genuine heart for the people. The staff along with their volunteers have character, integrity and they let you know you can and will make it! #TeamMinniesROCKS!

Have you ever gone for assistance and was made to feel poor and inferior? That's definitely not the case at Minnie's Food pantry. I'm currently battling colon cancer and I had to make a decision to either purchase my medications or buy food so that my child and I could eat.

The moment I stepped into the facility I felt welcome and all of my apprehension was disarmed by the infectious attitude of Cheryl and Erica. I felt like I was in a grocery store because I was able to get what I needed and would eat. Oftentimes boxes are prepared ahead of time and there is the potential for a lot of waste. Not so at Minnie's. I would highly recommend this pantry to anyone looking to partner with an organization that has integrity and their ultimate goal is to service and help people. They are changing the lives of many one person at a time.
