  • Food insecurity exists in every county and congressional district in the country. But not everyone struggling with hunger qualifies for federal nutrition assistance. Hunger must continually be addressed in our community and the Devine Food Pantry Ministry is and will be the voice of the hungry! The Devine Food Pantry Ministry was founded in 2004 by the Devine Ministerial Fellowship, a collective group of Ministers and clergy from the Devine, Natalia, Lytle and Moore Texas communities.

    We are 100% people and community funded. Long term underemployment, unemployment and the high cost of food, gas, utilities and rent are forcing more and more people to seek emergency food. The need for emergency food is unprecedented.

    What does it take to fight hunger? Monetary Donations & Volunteers.

     

    Monetary donations to cover the expenses of food acquisition, maintaining a physical plant, electricity, phone service, water, sewage and trash, insurance etc and volunteers who not only fill boxes with food donated by the Wal-Mart Stores of Devine, Hondo & Castroville and HEB-Lytle, but volunteers who pick up food procured through the San Antonio Food Bank and local food drives from the Devine ISD, volunteers who unload the vehicles and place the items in the storeroom, stock the shelves in the distribution area, process the orders for distribution, maintain the physical premises and clerical help in the intake area for the required governmental and SAFB member agency forms.

     

    The Devine Food Pantry Ministry is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that provides food assistance to children and families in need in our community and surrounding areas. Hunger is a growing epidemic and it continues to affect hundreds on a daily basis. The Devine Food Pantry provides numerous programs to meet the needs of every person who walks through our doors.

     

    The Devine Food Pantry Ministry is one of the leading pantries in Media County Texas and we are proud members of the San Antonio Food Bank . We serve low income families regardless of their race, color, or religion. Your donations may be tax deductible. With your generous support, Devine Food Pantry Ministry will be able to continue to roll out the red carpet and serve families in need. It takes co-operation, efficiency, and strong partnerships to fight hunger.
