What to Expect
We are a “client-choice food pantry” which allows for individuals seeking food assistance to choose the products they bring home to their families. Clients may make an appointment once a month and come into the food pantry to pick the products that they like to eat. We always carry a core list of items based on nutritional guidelines from the North Texas Food Bank, like canned fruits, vegetables, and proteins, beans, grains, meat, and eggs, along with various donated items such as bread, frozen meals, and produce.
Our volunteer “shoppers” walk through the pantry with our clients and help explain what items they may place in their cart based on the size of their family and what we have in stock. This model creates a more dignified experience for the client and reduces food waste due to preference and dietary constraints. Our food pantry also allows for clients to meet with a Case Manager to help meet other needs available throughout the agency.
With our client-choice pantry reopening, we are returning to our zip code requirements. If you live outside of these zip codes, please go to NTFB.org to find a pantry near you. If you live in the zip codes we service, please create an account to schedule an appointment.
