One of the foundational services we offer is a full-service, client-choice food pantry. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we closed our indoor pantry and moved to a full drive-thru pantry method. Although it was difficult to push pause on our client-choice pantry, it forced us to think outside the box and, in doing so, two of our newest services were created. We currently offer two methods for our clients to receive nutritious foods for their families.
Mornings or evenings, online or in person, pick up or delivery...
We have options for you
We serve the greater South East Dallas area including the towns of Mesquite, Garland, Sunnyvale, Rowlett, Rockwall, Forney, and surrounding areas. If you are a Balch Springs resident, please click here to visit our Opal J. Smith Food Pantry. If you are not in our service area, please visit our list of partners by clicking here to find a pantry near you.
Our client-choice pantry is available by appointment with the exception of our evening pantries. We have a large variety of food, including meats and produce, for you to choose from. Each household will leave with enough food for two full weeks. We also have items such as diapers and formula, toiletries, and household items, along with pet food available (selection of food of non-food essentials may vary from week to week, based on availability). Please note, that when you schedule your appointment to shop in our pantry, you will also have the option to shop for our clothing as well.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 9 AM – 3 PM
Senior Friday’s: 9 AM – 12:30 PM
No appointment needed:
Tuesday and Thursday: 5PM – 7PM
Please note, your next appointment must be two weeks after your last pantry visit.
The ePantry is our newest service here at Sharing Life. This method of receiving food allows you to go online and shop for your own groceries. You are able to select the time and date that work best for you. On the day of your appointment, you will come to Sharing Life, and park, and we will bring your groceries out and place them in your vehicle. Best of all, with our ePantry option, you can skip the line! To learn more about how to get started, please click here to watch our ePantry video.
