Mission Statement: The mission of the Kelly Memorial Food Pantry is to fight against hunger in the El Paso community by providing its residents with resources they need such as food.
History: The Kelly Memorial Food Pantry is operated by all volunteers from Trinity-First and other local churches in the El Paso community who want to help those in need of food assistance .
The Kelly Memorial Food Pantry began in 2001 through a memorial gift from its namesake, Bob Kelly. The food pantry began in the basement of Trinity- First United Methodist Church serving clients in the area immediately surrounding the church on the first and third Saturday of the month. With time, the need of the pantry grew. With more than 4,500 families, which is over 13,000 individuals being assisted each year, the pantry was moved to its new location at 915 N. Florence, still in the Heart of El Paso to ensure that El Paso residents are continuously not going hungry.

Jardin de Milagros
Jardin de Milagros is an outreach ministry designed to furnish healthy, garden fresh vegetables to those who don’t have enough to eat.
To operate the garden, it costs a good deal of money to pay for seeds, labor, fuel, fertilizer, utilities, equipment repairs, tool, and so much more. Donations to support the garden is your way to helping others in need. If you would like to donate or volunteer please call the Hobson’s at Jerry (915) 867- 3371 or Susie (915) 497- 8755.
