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 with Minnies and was impressed with the level of care they have regarding the items they provide to their clients. I worked in the second-hand store readying items for sale and was truly impressed with the standards they have about the products they offer for sale.
I love that they fresh produce that does not met their standards for human consumption is used by local farmers to feed livestock. They seem to waste very little!
A great organization that I hope to have a continuing relationship with!
I volunteered through my job @ Minnie's.It was just so awesome and a lot of fun to help out for a few hours with this amazing charitable organization. Minnie's is Godsend and the work they do is definitely out of love for the community and people in need. The staff is high spirited , motivated and dedicated to serving. I also need to mention Minnie's Resale Store , great place to shop and donate your new or slightly worn clothing and household items. Every thing they do is about giving. I will be back to volunteer on my own and through work . This one is real and should truly be supported.
I had volunteer at Minnie's through my job. I had never heard of Minnie's before. This was a wonderful experience all of the work that Minnie's does for the community is amazing. We work in the resale shop some because it was after an event they had the night before and we love it. Plan on becoming a regular volunteer outside of work, and since my son had to do volunteer work before college this is where we plan on doing a lot of it.
I have volunteered at a lot of food pantries over the years and have never experienced the organization that is Minnie's. Their attention to detail and commitment to providing their customers with a dignified experience is amazing. I plan to volunteer here in the future.
They have such a great structure of where they need help and you, as the volunteer, are able to see your time go to use! We had such a fantastic time volunteering through our work team and would highly recommend it.
Our company along with some affiliates spent the morning at Minnie's Food Pantry. The staff and organization was amazing! What a great experience : )

This is a great charity that does wonderful work for this community. It was a privilege to serve with them. We will be back to seve again!!!!
I volunteered with my company and the experience was humbling and amazing. All the volunteers I worked with that day, came from different companies. We came on the same mission, to do what we can with what we have, which is our time. Lynnette and her team were so welcoming and now I have decided to go back whenever they need me. A lot of people are blessed by what Minnie has done and keep on doing. Minnie's Food Pantry is doing what God ask of us to do, that is to help one another. This place is a blessing in many ways. Highfive Minnie's Food Pantry!
Volunteering at Minnie’s was a rewarding experience. The day I was there we helped 73 families by providing 3650 meals. Everything was well organized, and everyone was treated with care. I will definitely be volunteering again.
We enjoy volunteering at Minnie's as a family. The staff and volunteers are very dedicated to offering a professional, welcoming, kind experience to every client who comes to the pantry. It is a wonderful outreach effort and very well run.
It was such a wonderful experience to volunteer and to be part of a wonderful organization, the detail, the kindness, selfless way people at Minnies work together to give their best to the community. Thank you Minnies for everything you do on helping others.
Volunteering at Minnie's Food Pantry was a 100% positive experience. There were so many volunteers and staff busily working to make life better for those less fortunate. Volunteers represent all ages, races, and ethnic groups as do the clients. Such of feeling of community! Minnie's runs like a well-oiled machine, yet every client was treated with individual respect . I saw personal attention being paid to everyone who was served. I smiled all the rest of the day after volunteering, and woke up with a smile on my face the next morning remembering the Minnie experience. What an "upper"! I can hardly wait to go back!
I volunteered with my college aged son and I was very impressed with Minnies Food Pantry. I had heard of it but had never volunteered. They were very organized and has us to work quickly. It worked like a well oiled machine. What a wonderful offering they provide the community.
We had a great time and were really impressed about all that Minnies Food Pantry does for the community. We will definitely be back to help out and support this wonderful charity!
