To Those Who Have Plenty

18% of Americans struggle to buy food. The simple truth is children are starving, right in your backyard.

The part that increasingly surprises us, is how normal their stories are. While often criticized by the public as failures with statements like “why don’t you get a job”, our community at AC Food Pantry knows these pains and treats everyone as a family.

Over 50 million of Americans struggle to find food each day. How can you help?

Our Story

Letter from Walt:

“After recognizing the need for feeding families in East Plano, me and my family felt personally moved. In April of 2011, A Christian Food Pantry was officially started. Since then we have happily served thousands of families with the same hearts, minds, and souls as us, and are so grateful to take part in such a wonderful and compassionate community. Through operating over the past years, many life’s have been changed, but I can say everyday that my family goes home everyday the most changed. If you are in need of assistance, whether that be through food or clothing, please come in. We understand and feel as though we were put here to help empower you.

We are committed to showing respect and grace to our clients. A Christian Food Pantry is set up as a “farmer’s market” – people select which items they need. Handing someone a pre-packaged bag of food is not uplifting. We want to make each family smile and show them what grace looks like, feels like and tastes like, especially for the children.”
