Focus on Healthy Food Options

In addition to all non-perishables that are accepted at the ACO Food Pantry, ACO’s focus in 2015 continues with collecting healthy food choices for our local families in need. You can help us achieve our goals by choosing low-fat, fat-free, whole grain and low-sodium food items to donate. ACO’s Food Pantry is also equipped a large walk-in freezer and refrigerator to accommodate fresh foods and meats.

The ACO Food Pantry offers crisis food to families living in Allen area communities. Canned food items, non-perishables, frozen meats and fresh produce and dairy are often available to families in need. Stock in the ACO Food Pantry is a reflection of donations from the community and support from the North Texas Food Bank.
