“Each year Minnie’s Food Pantry hosts an Annual Thanksgiving giveaway to distribute complete Thanksgiving meals, including a turkey and all the trimmings, to families who would otherwise go without in North Texas. Minnie’s Food Pantry has been the leading food pantry in North Texas, we have distributed over four million meals since the pandemic hit in March. We will have several guests from the Dallas Mavericks including the CEO, Cynt Marshall and the Mavs Dancers to help entertain the crowd and show them love during the holidays. With the uncertainties of COVID-19 the impact it has had on our community made us create a giveaway experience that will put smiles on people’s faces behind their mask. This year’s event is anticipated to be larger and better than ever before you have to see it to believe it. ”-Dr. Cheryl Jackson, Founder, Minnie’s Food Pantry.
