We are a “Client Choice” Pantry, our clients choose their own food with the help of volunteers. We provide meat, eggs, produce and toiletries with each order. With the help of the community, each year we are growing to serve the needs of the neighbors.
Our funding comes from donations from our sponsor community organizations, member churches, individuals, and annual fund-raising events. We are a proud member of the Houston Food Bank. About 70% of our food comes from the Houston Food Bank, the balance is from donations with a small portion being purchased from funds of the Heights Interfaith Ministries.
