More Details

The Emanuel Community Center (ECC) is a 501(3)(c) in the heart of Old East Dallas. As a community-focused organization, ECC volunteers lend their time, talent and resources to helping those who otherwise would go hungry. 

According to the North Texas Food Bank, nearly 1 in 5 Dallas area residents is food insecure. To help address this crises, the ECC provides food pantry and homeless services to our neighbors in need.

Food Pantry volunteers can assist with:
  • Client registration and intake (Spanish speaking skills a bonus!)
  • Organizing groceries for distribution 
  • Shopping for clients
Homeless services volunteer help includes:
  • Packing takeaway food bags
  • Distribution of bags to homeless residents in attendance
Clients of the ECC Food Pantry and homeless services greatly appreciate all that they receive, just as the ECC appreciates serving the community.
