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.
Focus is on helping families, veterans and other people in need in the community with a variety of resources. Food of course being one, and a lot of food passes thru that facility, but also with training on finances and how to prepare meals with the food received. Also, there are clothing items, books, and other sundry items. The staff is beyond nice, they are family to these people. I was impressed and will be volunteering agian
I loved volunteering with Minnies Food Pantry!! They made it fun and it was organized so that everyone was maximizing their efforts!!
Great group experience! Dancing, singing, and laughing are all part of the package! You also get to sort REAL food to be provided to families in need. What a great combination!
I was absolutely blown away by Cheryl and the entire staff. The experience was fantastic. I had a blast and, more importantly, the opportunity to help serve an undeniably worthwhile cause. It was a blessing. What a wonderful organization. I definitely want to go back and volunteer again....soon !
I volunteered with my company and it was an inspiring experience - I look forward to volunteering my time and donations to Minnie's in the future.
Minnie's Food Pantry is a full service shop that includes food services and educational opportunities for people in need of a loving helping hand! I was very impressed with the huge facility and all the people involved. They literally roll out the red carpet for guest services!
I had a great experience at Minnie's Food Pantry. I have volunteered at many places in the past few years but none have been as rewarding as helping out at Minnie's. Everyone there was extremely friendly and made all the volunteers feel welcomed and appreciated. I especially enjoyed meeting some of the clients that come in for services. I had the opportunity to help carry out the food and really enjoyed talking to the clients and learning a bit about each of them. I also really liked how well organized Minnie's operation is, it seems to all work so well and I know the reason is because of the great staff they have. Congratulations on your great team!!
This was a great experience in giving back and seeing the actual hand-off to those that are in need. I had the pleasure of being my first time volunteer at Minnie's food Pantry. The staff was very welcoming, organized and grateful.
I will be back to donate my time to volunteer and will tell others as well.
This is the first time that I have volunteered at Minnies Food Pantry Inc. My first reaction was
very positive! The overall energy and attitude is very welcoming and friendly. The people at check in were kind and patient, they did not seem frustrated or overwhelmed with a full house of people. The facility seems extremely organized and CLEAN. I will volunteer again at some point in the future.
About 20 of us volunteered from our company. We received orientation and assignments. We were busy from 8AM until 11:30AM, non stop. I LOVED it!
The staff at Minnie's was great. They were very friendly and knowledgeable. They gave us a tour of their facilities, the story behind Minnie's and informed us of their community needs, relationships and people that they serve.
I've volunteered with other organizations in the community and they can be very unorganized and not a good use of our time for the number of employees that come to volunteer. I am very impressed with the organization of the various jobs that we were able to do. I can't believe we prepared and served so many people in that short amount of time.
I would like to go back again.
