LETS SAVE THE PANTRY TOGETHER
Please Help in Any Way that You Can!!!
From one of our volunteers…The pantry not only means a lot to the clients, it also means a lot to those who volunteer at it. Please find it in your heart to help out. Thank you. “Good morning, how are you? I am writing you to ask if you would please consider making a donation to the food pantry I volunteer at. Here's why...we are unable to do food drives at Walmart's due to the tragic incident on August 3rd. The food drives are how we get our non perishables to give to the people. We are also trying to raise money to keep the doors open. We are a non profit organization and solely rely on donations.”
School Backpack Giveaway!!!
On August 11, we were blessed to have our annual back pack giveaway thanks to our silent sponsor. This allowed YEIE to provide at least 70 children with backpacks filled with school supplies that they might not otherwise have had. We also had lots of treat and sweets for all the kids to eat! A great time was had by all!
Everyone had a “hoppin” good time at the You EAt I EAt Easter BBQ. There was food and fun to be had by all. Lots of burgers, hotdogs and grilled chicken! It was a fantastic time and a great success. All the little Easter Bunnies hopped off with baskets full of candy and goodies. A BIG thanks to Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity for helping BBQ the food and for serving it. Also thank you so much to Willie and Mary DeLa Rosa and Chad and Cynthia Hill for donations of the Easter Baskets. None of this would have been possible without organizations and people like you!

Walmart Neighborhood Market Food Drive!!!
After enjoying the holidays with our family and friends, YEIE opened back up its doors to help God’s children in need. Fortunately we were invited back to the local Walmart Neighborhood Market to help fill up our Pantry so that we could ensure we could keep giving a “hand up not a hand out” to those that need us. Without community partners like the Walmart Neighborhood Market and people in the community of El Paso who care, we could not do what we do. We give out non-perishable items almost as fast as we give them out. It truly does take a village and we are so grateful.
Christmas at the Pantry!!!
This year on December 22, 2018 we were very blessed to be able to host our annual Christmas at the Pantry. Not only were we able to have a special meal for all of God’s special children, we were also blessed by the generous donations toys that Santa was able to give to every child that came through our doors. We couldn’t do anything without our sponsors, donors or volunteers. It takes a village to make things happen and this event was a HUGE hit! We are so happy that we were able to bring SO MUCH JOY to so many people during the holiday season! Now on to bigger and brighter things in 2019!
Moye Elementry School Christmas Party!!!
On the December 20th, 2018 we were very blessed to be able to hold our first ever Christmas Party at Moye Elementary School. Because of the generous donations from the community and organizations like Full Beauty Brands we gave the children a Christmas party that they will never forget! There was pizza, cookies, lots of snacks, presents and even Santa! So much fun was had by everyone that attended! We can’t wait to make this an annual event and are so thankful that we are able to help all of God’s special children at YEIE!
Pizza at the Pantry!!!
We are VERY EXCITED to announce that on Thursday November 8th, 2018 we hosted our very first “PIZZA AT THE PANTRY” After School Lunches To Go Program!We understand that there are children who may not be returning home from school to a full dinner table. So to help fill the bellies of those children we offer an after school meal (be it pizza, burgers, or hot dogs to go) beginning at 3:20 pm until our supply runs out.While it is preferable and encouraged that each child be accompanied by a parent or guardian, unaccompanied children will not be denied a meal with PRIOR and SIGNED APPROVAL from the parent or guardian.This approval MUST advise us of ANY AND ALL ALLERGIES from which the unaccompanied child my suffer.Also, if there are no allergies, the written approval MUST mention the fact that there are no allergies.We look forward to doing what we can to help some of the children of our community fill their bellies before trying to do their homework. But our supplies will be limited so please arrive as early as possible.The kids had a great time at our First Ever Pizza at The Pantry After School Meal to Go Program! We owe a big thank you to the students of Chapin High School who came and helped serve the kids of Moye Elementary School and others, giving them a hot meal before heading home for the day! The children are our future! At our First event, we were able to feed over 150 of God’s precious children! Thanks you guys! #KidsFeedingKids
