Food Pantry

Community gardens in Coppell, Addison and Farmers Branch regularly donate fresh produce.

Selecting Food for Your Meals

Individuals visiting our Food Pantry experience a self-choice operation arranged like a grocery store. Each person selects the items they prefer with quantities based on family size and available stock. Case Managers may provide one or more vouchers (each voucher is for one pantry visit) based on need.

Because we receive donations from several area stores, the North Texas Food Bank, and individual donors, as well as fresh seasonal produce from area gardens such as Coppell Community Garden, our stock varies from week to week. Items generally available include:
  • Canned vegetables, fruits and meat items
  • Helper-type mixes
  • Dried beans & rice
  • Seasonal fresh produce
  • Breads and pastries
  • Baking supplies
  • Toiletries & hygiene items
  • Household cleaning supplies
Volunteers assist clients through the pantry.

The Food Pantry is open Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with final appointments at 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with final appointments at 12:00 p.m.
