The Pantry, a Texas non-profit 501(c)(3) agency, has been serving this community since 1989. It started as a grass-roots organization headquartered in the kitchen of the First United Methodist Church. Today it continues as a community-supported service under the direction of a committed board of 16 residents. Services are provided by a very small staff and volunteers.
After outgrowing the church space and another shopping center location, the Pantry moved to its current location at 403 Houston in 2006. The land and building were acquired and built totally with donations.
