Food Assistance During Extended Spring Break

Rountree Family,


Please know that we are thinking about each of you. We wish everyone well during this extended Spring Break - March 16-20. If you or another Allen ISD family may be in need of food assistance during this time, please share this information with them.


FOOD ASSISTANCE

Allen Food Pantry

Located at 1515 N. Greenville Ave, Allen TX , behind St Jude Catholic Church. The building is in the parking lot on the southwest corner of the property. Although they are hosted by St Jude Church, they are not a function of the church. Please do not contact the church about food. Instead, families need to stop by the food pantry when they are open.

They are open Monday and Thursday from 6:30PM - 8PM and Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 9:30AM - 12PM.

They are closed on all major holidays.


First Baptist Church Allen – We Care Ministry Food Pantry

The Food Pantry distributes food and household items to residents of Allen who lack the resources to purchase the food supplies needed to maintain a healthy life. This is a "choice pantry" versus a "pre-bagged pantry," so we are able to meet an individual's nutritional needs as well as provide the foods they enjoy. One-time emergency assistance is offered without required proof, but for continued assistance proof of residency and income is required.

Hours of Operation:

Sunday 4:00-5:30 p.m. Tuesday 10:00-11:30 a.m. Wednesday 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Location:

Our Food Pantry is in Building D, on Cedar Street across from our Worship Center and Student Center.


Allen Community Outreach (ACO)

This is not a walk-in food pantry. Families must first call to make appointments.

Contact for information on Food Pantry and other resources 972-727-9131

Location: 801 E Main Street Allen Texas 75002
