Thanks to our partnership with the North Texas Food Bank we give out fresh fruit and vegetables in addition to meat, milk, eggs, bakery items and canned groceries. Here’s what they wrote to us, “My husband came by today. Thank you so much for everything! I put together a great dinner from so many things Irving Cares helped us with. I made taco salad with ground turkey, pinto beans and corn, cucumbers, avocado mixed with creamy goat cheese to make guacamole, and used fresh tomato, jalapeño, garlic and onion for homemade salsa.

The next night I made Asian Pork Fried Rice with Hot and Sour Soup with Irving Cares groceries (rice, canned peas, canned carrots, eggs, boneless pork ribs, garlic), it was a big hit – empty plates and empty bowls…the kids loved it!  Thank you, Irving Cares!” 11897098_10153552130935789_1568366767_n
