Metrocrest Services - Food Pantry and Financial Assistance

Metrocrest Social Service focuses are on assisting families, individuals and senior adults who are coping with crisis situations, need help stabilizing their lives, or who require support to live independently. The threat of eviction or loss of electrical service can be a major crisis for individuals or families. Depending on the specific circumstances, Metrocrest Services can often provide assistance to help a family or individual remain in their home. Help is also available in many cases, to assist with utility bills. Individuals visiting our Food Pantry experience a self-choice operation arranged like a grocery store. Each person selects the items they prefer with quantities based on family size and available stock. Case Managers may provide one or more vouchers (each voucher is for one pantry visit) based on need. Because we receive donations from several area stores, the North Texas Food Bank, and individual donors, as well as fresh seasonal produce from area gardens such as Coppell Community Garden, our stock varies from week to week. Items generally available include:
  • Canned vegetables, fruits and meat items
  • Helper-type mixes
  • Dried beans & rice
  • Seasonal fresh produce
  • Breads and pastries
  • Baking supplies
  • Toiletries & hygiene items
  • Household cleaning supplies
Volunteers assist clients through the pantry and load items in their cars. For more information please call us.
