CHANGAMOTO

CHANGAMOTO - Kusaidia kukidhi mahitaji ya majirani mbalimbali wahamiaji na wakimbizi katika Vickery Meadow Neighborhood.

HISTORIA YETU

MWAKA 2009 mashirika saba ya kidini yanaungana na kuunda Muungano wa Vickery Meadow Neighborhood ili kuwasaidia majirani kushughulikia tatizo lao kubwa zaidi, ukosefu wa chakula. Pantry ya chakula imeundwa na kuajiriwa 100% na watu wa kujitolea. Majirani hupokea chakula mara moja kwa mwezi.

MWAKA 2012 pantry ya chakula inasogea hadi eneo letu la sasa na kuoanisha huduma zake na Closet ya Ladies of Charity Clothes. Hekalu Emanu-El hutoa mazao mapya kutoka kwa bustani yao.

MWAKA 2016 NorthPark Presbyterian inajiunga na Alliance na kutoa nyanya, bidhaa kutoka kwa Reverse Food Truck na utoaji wa mkate, maziwa na mayai. Tunahudumia majirani kutoka 75231 na 75243.

MWAKA 2018 tunapanua huduma zetu kwa majirani katika misimbo ya posta ya 75230 na 75238.

MWAKA 2022 to present day the Vickery Meadow Food Pantry and Clothes Closet remains open during the COVID-19 pandemic. Neighbors no longer shop inside for food. Our neighbors are given pre-boxed food items with a choice of frozen protein and milk, eggs and bread. Hygiene and diaper items continue to be given when available. Due to the low cost of food items from the North Texas Food Bank, our neighbors are now eligible to receive food items once a week. Neighbors from all zip codes are served.

IN 2023 the Vickery Meadow Food Pantry and Clothes Closet experiences a surge in the number of neighbors visiting the pantry. In the first 10 months of the year, the pantry serves 69% more neighbors. In November, a decision is made to return to the four original zip codes for eligibilty: 75231, 75230, 75238 and 75243.
