Previously the pantry used one-half of its current building and shared it with the maintenance equipment of the church. We took over the whole building and added 20 feet to the current building. The photo below shows the artist rendering of the new Pantry before construction started. We now occupy the entire 1600 ft. building. In additon, we built the church a new storage facility. The choice-style pantry now looks like a small grocery store, where our friends can come and with guidance choose the food their families would like to eat. Having more space enables us to take advantage of bargains from the Houston Food Bank, it also provides space for nutrition classes, and even attracts more volunteers, so we can be open at night to better serve our working clients.
Thanksgiving – 2016
The Pantry providef groceries for Thanksgiving Dinner to over 850 families this Thanksgiving. The photos below were taken at the 2016 Thanksgiving event.
The Thanksgiving Distribution is a collaboration of churches, schools and individuals. Many people help with this every year. Our sponsoring churches provide the non perishables, we purchase the produce and the turkeys. On Monday of Thanksgiving week we serve families recommended to us by 16 Spring Branch Schools and on Tuesday we open and serve until all the food has been distributed. It is a good time for all!
