The GRACE Food Pantry does an incredible job at making sure our clients get the right food and necessities to take home to their families. That is why we are so honored to receive this year’s Pounds per Family award from Tarrant Area Food Bank.
Last week the Tarrant Area Food Bank hosted a Partner Agency conference at the Met Church in Fort Worth. The conference was attended by many food banks and pantries across Tarrant County including GRACE. The theme of the conference was “Convene, Connect and Engage”, and it highlighted capacity building throughout many food banks throughout Tarrant County. The conference also presented strong tips that each agency could use to modernize their programs.
During the awards portion of the conference, Community Impact’s Vice President, Vicky Martinez, presented GRACE with the award of distributing the Most Pounds per Family in Tarrant County. “The GRACE Food Pantry is always looking for more ways to give back to families across the community,” said Tarrant Area Food Bank Agency Services Coordinator, Klaressa Broughton. “It shows in this awesome award.”
Over the past year, GRACE was able to serve over 148 pound of food per family. A special thank you goes to our amazing volunteers and donors who help give back to the community. Another thanks goes to the Tarrant Area Food Bank for putting on another successful conference, highlighting the important aspects of capacity building.
