Shepherd’s Heart Robinson started with the pantry distribution operation in December 2013. At that time, the hunger needs of this area were greatly under served. Our goal is to bring resources together to create a more efficient method of using our collective resources, volunteers, money, and time to meet the needs of families dealing with hunger. We became an independent non-profit 501(c)3 organization of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code December 11, 2019.
We live in an area where the poverty rate is almost twice the national average. The next statistic may surprise you even more. One in four children in Texas (23.3%) under the age of 5 is “food insecure”—which is defined as not knowing where his or her next meal will come from. Texas has the second-highest food insecurity rate in the U.S. for all age groups…both statistics that the Shepherd’s Heart Robinson Food Pantry is working to change, on a daily basis—one nutritious meal at a time. Our goal is to provide food and services to those in need. Our efforts are to feed the hungry now and find poverty ending solutions for those whom we assist.
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code governed by an all-volunteer board of directors and volunteer pantry staff. We are an organization established by the local church community leaders upholding the mission of fighting food hunger needs within McLennan County and the surrounding counties. We meet the hunger needs of individuals living at or below the poverty line serving individuals, families with children, the elderly, the ill, those who meet the federal guidelines for participation in SNAP, and persons who have suffered a recent catastrophe, such as fire, tornado or loss of the single source of household income. Products and items are given free of charge, with no regard to race, religion, color, sex, national origin, disability or sexual preference.
