In April our Food Pantry and Clinic were destroyed by a fire. Thankfully the Grapevine Fire Department came to the rescue, and no one was hurt. Because of the fire, GRACE was forced to move the Food Pantry and Clinic. The City of Grapevine was so gracious in allowing us to be temporarily housed at the old Police Station on Dallas.
The time finally came for us to move back to our Walnut Street location, and we are SO thankful and excited.
On December 3rd and 4th, our ever dependable GRACE volunteers stepped up to help us load food for our clients, and move it to back to 837 E. Walnut St.
The Client Choice Food Pantry provides perishable and non-perishable food to individuals and families in need. More than a mere handout, the Client Choice Food Pantry uses a voucher system for GRACE clients to shop and select the food items that meet the cultural and dietary needs of their households.
The Food Pantry offers many volunteer opportunities.
- Substitute shifts while other volunteers have to take an absence
- Help with Holiday Food Distribution during Christmas or other holidays in the future
- Sort food after large food drives
- Landscaping (weed and trim bushes)

There is also always the option of running your very own holiday food drive. Holiday food drives could be held as late as December 18th for our last minute pickups leading to right before Christmas. Another option, that may allow more time for anyone who wishes to jump in to help last minute, would be a sock drive. We’re always looking for new socks, children, men and women and this could give you a little flex time, maybe even into the new year to collect? Either way, we’re very grateful to have anyone pitch in any and every way!
The Food Pantry updates their most pressing needs based on supply shortage or time of year. Please check back every so often to see if the needs have changed.
