The Interfaith Food Pantry helps families and individuals living in East Fort Bend County during times of financial crisis by providing nutritious perishable and non-perishable groceries, household items and toiletries. Referrals may come from area congregations or local social service agencies. Clients are seen on a first come, first served basis and are required to provide proper identification (i.e. drivers licence) and proof of residency (i.e. utility bill). Trained interviewers assess each situation to determine how clients can best be served. Nutritionally complete food orders are customized to the size and specific needs of each household.
We are asking that all clients wear a mask when they come to East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry.
