Aunt Bette’s Community Pantry: Responding to Needs and Neighbors

The team at Aunt Bette’s Community Pantry knows their neighbors. The pantry is run by the St. Philip’s School and Community Center, and named for Bette Perot, a dedicated volunteer at one of the center’s original food pantries. The current iteration was set up as a client-choice grocery store model before COVID-19 appeared in Dallas, but the transition to outdoor pick-up ensured that every client continued to have access to fresh produce and kitchen staples. Nearly a year and a half has passed since that change, and the need has only grown.
