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.
I recently volunteered at Minnie's Food Pantry. I verified can good expiration dates, sorted items, stacked shelves and helped create need boxes of grocery items. Took donated clothing and other items to drop off locations. This was a very rewarding experience. I was amazed at the dedication of the employees and in awe of the amount of food and meals that this organization provides to those in need. Truly amazing!!!!
The people who run this organization are awesome. They're friendly and bright and easily encourage everyone who volunteers to be the same. They were welcoming, kind, and obviously cared about their community. I'm looking forward to going back to volunteer as soon as I can!
This was my first time volunteering at Minnie's Food Pantry and it was a most exceptional experience. When the economy crashed in California 2008-2010, I was a food bank customer. Comparing Minnie's to that one, Minnie's is like the taj mahal of food banks! From the quality of the food, to the service, to the personality and style of the personnel. I will go back to volunteer with my company every year. And their resale boutique is amazing as well! I would recommend this food bank to anyone looking for sure!
Minnie's Pantry is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer. Not only because of the cause that they support but also because they are super friendly and also highly organized. Which made the volunteer experience a very positive and productive one. All of the volunteers (50+) had continuous tasks to do the entire time we were there. Dr Cheryl Jackson was there and she is a magnificent soul, fun, loving , smart and a true motivator. Her personality and spirit kept the team going at a great pace and helped everyone enjoy themselves.

THANK YOU FOR THIS INCREDIBLE REVIEW AND WE HOPE TO SERVE WITH YOU AGAIN SOON.
This nonprofit organization touches home for myself. When I was a young girl my mother who was divorced and trying to raise four kids on her own struggled to put food on the table or pay the bills. I can remember eating cereal without milk for dinner. This organization is making a positive impact on so many families with the work they are doing. I enjoyed working along side Cheryl Action Jackson and her team! I can't wait to come back with my seven year old son and allow him to have this experience! Keep up the great work Minnie's team!!
Mininie's food pantry is a great place to spend your volunteer hours. It's awesome to be able to see the fruits of your labor when you put smiles on faces by feeding them
It was my first time volunteering and it made me appreciate what they do for the community. I hope they continue to grow so they can help out more people. God bless!
It was really amazing great atmosphere !and over all really positive and it felt good to help and be apart of such a great organization thanks for having me ☺️.
I recently volunteered at Minnie's for the first time. Cheryl and her team are so very excited and passionate about the work they are doing there, collecting food, sorting, now the resale shop - to help further the donation of food, and serving the families in need. They are amazing and have authentic servants hearts. They appreciate their volunteers and treat them like family as well. Volunteering at Minnie's was far more a blessing to me, than I was to them.
