Community Ministries is a faith-centered outreach whose goal is to be a catalyst for positive change within the community. To accomplish this goal we focus on the issues of spiritual well-being, reducing social isolation among senior adults, preventing homelessness, neighborhood revitalization and reduction of hunger in our community.

Food Pantry

Every day, thousands of people in Tarrant County go hungry or suffer food insecurity (not knowing where or when the next meal will come). Many families suffer from poor nutrition because they do not have the means or the knowledge to provide a healthy diet.

Last year our Food Pantry provided free grocery assistance to more than 30,000 individuals. The Food Pantry serves low or no income households in 17 zip codes of Northeast Tarrant County.  Many of these are senior or disabled households living on low, fixed income, many are single parents with children…all of them need that helping hand up to regain stability.

Our Food Pantry also partners with agencies like Tarrant Area Food Bank to provide nutritional education and cooking classes at no charge to the families who utilize our services.

Our Food Pantry depends on donations from individuals, churches and corporate partnerships.
If you, your church or your business are interested in helping us provide this much needed service, please click here for a list of items always needed or how to donate.

Please see below, if you qualify for grocery assistance.
