Our Community Pantry
a Program of the North Texas Food Bank

Our Community Pantry is a client's choice food pantry located in the heart of South Dallas. With the help of dedicated volunteers, OCP is the first pantry to be operated and staffed by the North Texas Food Bank.

The focus of OCP is to provide our clients with a pleasant shopping experience, allowing them to take home healthful foods for their families.  The shelves of OCP are stocked with canned and dry goods and the NTFB works to have fresh produce available for clients to enjoy.

OCP serves residents from the 75203, 75210 and 75215 zip codes.  Many of the residents in the neighborhood are senior citizens whose income is made up of Social Security Retirement, Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income. The foods they receive at OCP help them to stretch their limited budgets.
