FOOD PANTRY: Sundays 4:00-5:30p  |  Tuesdays 10:00-11:30a  |  Wednesdays 6:00-7:30p  |  Bldg D

Our Food Pantry distributes food and household items to residents of Allen, Fairview, and Lucas who lack the resources to maintain a healthy life. This is a "choice pantry" versus a "pre-bagged pantry," so we are able to meet an individual's nutritional needs as well as provide the foods they enjoy. One-time emergency assistance is offered, with continued assistance provided upon proof of residency and income.

Hours of Operation:
Sunday 4:00-5:30 p.m.
Tuesday 10:00-11:30 a.m.
Wednesday 6:00-7:30 p.m.
(The Food Pantry may close around certain holidays. Call 972.727.8241 to verify opening during holiday seasons.)
