FRISCO - "Feed just one." It's the slogan that's led to Minnie’s Food Pantry providing more than 4 million meals to hungry families.
On Monday, the non-profit's fight against hunger continued with its 8th annual "Feed Just One" gala at the Westin Stonebriar Hotel in Frisco.
"We are raising money for an amazing cause, which is Minnie's Food Pantry, named after my mother," the founder, Cheryl Jackson, told NewsFix. "I am just so thrilled at the community support that we have tonight."
Members of the Dallas Mavericks were on-hand to contribute to a night dedicated to a great cause, including team owner Mark Cuban, "If you can't afford food, then there's nothing you can do. And so, being able to deal with issues of food insecurity is huge for all of North Texas."
Mavs star Devin Harris was honored at the gala for donating 30,000 meals in the Dallas community.
"I don't do it for the recognition, I just do it because it feels good to m," Harris said. "And it's something I enjoy doing, but I'm humbled. We all try to do our part, I'm just trying to do mine."
Dwight Powell, along with some of Harris’ other teammates, was in attendance to offer his support for him on his special night, "To be here to kind of follow in the footsteps and try to help out with this organization that's making change, it means a lot to us."
