For over 40 years, the Greenhouse/Key Care Mission, now rebranded as MARKET DEPOT food pantry has served homeless and underserved “neighbors” with food at no cost. No appointment is needed, only an ID for each family member. Located at 619 E. Houston in Sherman, The MARKET DEPOT is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1-4 pm. In 2021 the MARKET DEPOT provided over 225,000 pounds of food and 31,000 household items to some 9,200 individuals. The MARKET DEPOT program continues to grow throughout the county. It currently requires approximately 40 regular weekly volunteers. Because of the efficiencies of the volunteer program coordinators, procedures are streamlined and distribution time is reduced.  After the move to our new building in January of 2021, and getting settled in, the Market Depot was transitioned to a Choice Pantry starting March 1st, 2021.  Our customers were able to gain power over their food choices by being able to come inside the Market and choose their own food and toiletry items.  We have made every effort to have the same food choices as any grocery store including fresh dairy and produce and frozen meat.  Our customers have truly appreciated being able to choose the items they and their families prefer.
