Minnie's Food Pantry
When the pandemic arrived we had to change the way we serve our community. For years, we took pride in offering the red carpet treatment to the families that we serve. Minnie's Food Pantry started our contact free serving experience. We went from rolling out the red carpet to providing meals to our families with a state of the art drive-thru service. We understand the importance of safety for the our employees and the families we serve. We greet every car with a smile and healthy meals to put in their car. We ask that the trunk is empty so we can put the food in the trunk and prevent little to no contact. We practice social distancing and we periodically we offer free PPE supplies to the families we serve. Our hours of operation are Wednesday-Saturday 8:30am-11:30am.
We are optimistic that with the growing widespread availability of the vaccine, more North Texans will be able to return to work and school and economic recovery can begin. But we also know that many of our neighbors will still feel the impacts of the pandemic for months or even years to come. We will continue to be on the frontlines ensuring those in need have nutritious food and working with our Partner Agencies to increase access to additional services that will help our neighbors regain self-sufficiency.

THE CAMPUS FOOD PANTRIES
ARE PART OF THE STUDENT CARE NETWORK
In Spring 2018, the St. Vincent campus in Lancaster expanded its list of available services. Together, SVdP, Catholic Charities of Dallas, and the North Texas Food Bank opened the Jan Pruitt Community Pantry. Thanks to this innovative partnership, we have the capacity to serve more than 1400 families per month. While on the St. Vincent campus, visitors can learn more about other SVdP programs that can support them on their journey to self-sufficiency. Do you live in the South Dallas region?
