them to improve themselves in every way possible so they have a more positive future.

Programs & Services Offered by Sharing Life:

A food pantry in partnership with the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB)
One of the foundational services we offer is a full-service food pantry. And in June of 2016, we finished renovating our warehouse space
to add large walk in refrigerators and freezers and expanded food shelves and became a Hub of the North Texas Food Bank! This allows
us to offer better quality of food and quicker and more affordable service to surrounding smaller food pantries. Instead of those small
pantries having to visit the main facility near downtown Dallas, they can make the much shorter trip to the Sharing Life Hub to pick up
their food. This saves them transportation costs and they can use those funds to provide other services to their clients. Read more
about our partnership with the North Texas Food Bank here.
