GRACE Grapevine Launches First-Ever Mobile Pantry, Asks for Community Help

May 12, 2015 08:52AM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

For the first time in its history, GRACE Grapevine has launched a mobile food pantry. It was created for the GRACE Grocery Giveaway, a program that uses food and produce donations received at the end of the week to be enjoyed by families over the weekend.

The organization aims to serve nearly 40,000 meals to at-risk children during the summer months – and it’s calling for the community to help achieve this goal.

Corporate partners, civic groups and faith-based groups can serve as community volunteers and meal sponsors for Feed Our Kids, a program that was started in 2005 to provide lunch for area children during the summer weeks when they may not receive one. 

For as little as $2 per child, a local group or business can adopt a day or workweek to host the meals. Groups also have the option of sponsoring the meals for other groups to host. 

Depending on the site and type of meal, the average cost each day ranges between $100 and $500. Groups are encouraged to bring games and engage with the children, although it’s not a requirement.  

Want to learn more about how to get involved? GRACE is hosting a volunteer kick-off May 12 at First United Methodist Church Grapevine at the Heritage campus across from Colleyville High School. The kick-off runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
