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 no only fill boxes with food donated by Wal-Mart-Devine & Hondo, H-E-B- Lytle, Dollar General-Devine and Food King-Devine 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.
