Covid-19 Update

As a result of the coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic, we are working diligently to prioritize the health of our neighbors and staff. As a result, the food assistance program has been slightly modified. Masterkey Ministries has been designated a disaster distribution site by the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) and we serve anyone in need, regardless of residence or income. The mobile pantry has adopted a no touch, driveby system. Upon arrival, clients will be asked for their city of residence and household size for our tracking purposes. Clients may pick up for multiple households. The client choice pathway has also adopted a driveby system. Clients receive three units of food: a disaster family box, a produce box, and a perishable box.
