Monthly Meeting-Pack The Pantry


In addition to our monthly DB Meeting we are asking everyone to help us Pack The Pantry at YFT. If you can help with anything, it would be greatly appreciated. The list of items is below.

Youth First Texas Snack Pantry “Wish List”
I’ve gotten the following list from the youth and have done my best to organize it by categories and ranked the foods as well.

So the most popular items for each category will be at the top and so on.

By no means should you feel like everything on this list needs to be purchased. We appreciate all the help and work that you do for us.
