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.
Ever since day one, Minnies Food Pantry has set out to make a difference in the community through service. I am incredibly grateful to the people of Collin County and corporations that have supported this cause and mission Minnie's. Who are we to judge another, especially someone in need? We are angels extending a helping hand in order to help someone else. It's not WHAT you do, its HOW you do it! That is the biggest difference that I have felt and experienced while being apart of this great organization. The atmosphere is electric and the experience is one of a kind. Thank you to all who have played a part in touching the lives of so many!
I absolutely LOVE Minnie's Food Pantry! Minnie's Food Pantry gives more than just a meal to a family in need. You can tell that the volunteers as well as the staff make it their job to provide smiles and hugs to all those that walk through the door. If you have ever been put in the position to have to go receive food assistance you know that it is one of the most difficult things to do! But the people at Minnie's takes your mind off the worries with their warm hugs and uplifting words. I would recommend this organization to everyone and anyone that needs an extra hand or has an extra hand to give!!!!!! Its not just an organization, its a group of people fulfilling God's will to help, heal, and give to those in need!!
The staff and volunteers are always happy to serve you and share a hug and encouraging words. They provide red carpet concierge service to every person who walks through the door. With upbeat music playing, you can walk, skip, run or dance your way down the red carpet and the volunteer will dance with you too! You will receive meat, eggs, milk, fresh fruit and salads. But most importantly you receive something long after the food is gone, love, hope and encouragement.
Minnie's Food Pantry is the model pantry for our comunity. They provide a service that far exceeds feeding families. They provide a place of hope, happiness, and inspiration. The volunteers and staff are very welcoming with a warm smile and servant's heart. Thank you Minnie's Food Pantry for uplifting our community.
