Food Pantry

The Food Pantry meets the nutritional needs of individuals and families that are unable to provide adequate food for their households.

The pantry is open to the general public.

Drop off your food donations at the Food Pantry on Thursdays or Fridays from 10 am to 2 pm or Saturdays from 9 am to 12 noon.

We value the dignity of our clients and want to provide a positive shopping experience, so we use the "Client Choice Model" where shoppers select the food of their choice.

Help TTA Fight Hunger - THE FACTS
  • In North Texas, there is a 29-million meal gap between what people need—3 meals per day—and what they can currently access
  • There are children who sit next to your kids in class every day that go hungry every evening
  • Hard-working families in your neighborhood struggle with the decision to pay bills or buy food
  • Seniors who live around the corner from you are quietly wondering where their next meal is coming from
  • Hungry children have poorer mental and overall health, miss more days of school, suffer greater rates of behavioral disorders and are less prepared to learn when they are in school
You can make a difference in someone’s life and together we can successfully close the gap on hunger. Through your donations of food, you are partnering with us as we do our part in helping urban youth and families live healthy through proper nutrition.
