The Start

Amazing Grace Food Pantry was founded in 2006 as an agency member of the North Texas Food Bank. Here, the organization began operating as a community outreach food pantry with an open-door policy so that no one in need would go hungry.

In 2016, with help from the community, Amazing Grace Food Pantry was able to start construction on a new facility. When the new facility opened in 2018, volunteers and those in need were met with more space, an indoor waiting area, restrooms, and a larger shopping area, all of which allow the organization to better serve its cause.
