Minnie’s Food Pantry (MFP) is a community funded nonprofit organization headquartered in Plano, Texas, with a mission to provide healthy meals, educational resources and red-carpet treatment to children and families in need. We believe that overall wellness begins with healthy food and financial education. Our ultimate goal is to provide numerous programs that help families gain long-term food security and to break the generational curse of people (especially children) in low-income areas not having access to fresh fruits and vegetables
Founded on April 1, 2008, in celebration of Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing, Minnie’s Food Pantry has since distributed over 15 million meals and counting! Through the programs and services offered, Minnie’s Food Pantry distributes on-site Wednesday-Saturday 8:30AM-11:30AM and delivers directly to senior living facilities and schools across our community to better serve those in most need of food assistance.
As Minnie’s Food Pantry approaches the celebration of 13 years of service, it has been recognized as the largest food pantry in North Texas, the #1 Charity in DFW and remains one of the few food pantries that serves regardless of zip code.
