Making Donations of Food

Six days each week, 364 days a year, Mission Arlington provides food for people in need. Thanks for the way you give, so that no family in our community will ever have to be hungry.

Everything that you donate goes directly into the hands of someone in need. Download the pantry list, or learn how to put together your own food bags.

A Community Effort

Mission Arlington does not purchase food. Instead, we depend upon individuals, families, civic organizations and businesses across our community to help us help people in need.

You, your family, and/or your organization can help Mission Arlington keep providing food to families in need. Canned and dry goods can make make all the difference. You can bring food into the Mission office, or call us at 817-277-6620, and we will come pick it up.
