Minnie’s Food Pantry 10th Annual Gala

Minnie’s Food Pantry, a national non-profit organization with a mission of feeding the hungry, is excited to announce Oprah Winfrey as the keynote speaker for its 10th Anniversary “Feed Just One” Gala. This star-studded, black-tie event will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 in Collin County, Texas. The red-carpet will start at 5:30 pm and the dinner and program will start at 7 pm.  Get your tickets here.

Emmy-nominated actress, author and President of LightWorkers Media, Roma Downey and award-winning television and film producer Mark Burnett, President of MGM Television Group and Digital will be honored with the Minnie Ewing Legacy Award presented by Toyota. The legacy award identifies, supports and celebrates individuals who have demonstrated “the heart of a giver” in the same way that Minnie Ewing lived her life.  It acknowledges individuals who have exhibited outstanding leadership and contributed at least 300,000 meals to Minnie’s Food Pantry.

As a non-profit organization that is 100% community funded, Minnie’s Food Pantry hosts the gala as its only fundraising event of the year. This event allows them to raise awareness and generate the funds needed to continue its mission and provide for the thousands of individuals that seek their services on a monthly basis. 

Over the last decade, Minnie’s Food Pantry has provided over 7 million meals to families living in low income, food insecure households. As an award winning non-profit organization and the largest food pantry in Collin County, Minnie’s Food Pantry has brought light to the issue of food insecurity on both a local and national platform, being featured on Steve Harvey Show, Food Network Channel, Ellen DeGeneres, Good Morning America and many others. Through supplemental food assistance, educational resources and support from the community, Minnie’s Food Pantry has changed the stigma associated with “hunger”, providing a red carpet experience to every individual we serve and further reducing hunger by expanding into schools across the nation.

Venue to be announced.
