Dillas Partners with Minnie’s Food Pantry to Alleviate Hunger in North Texas

As if Dillas Primo Quesadillas couldn’t get any more awesome (they have ridiculously delicious made-to-order quesadillas, they constantly support community nonprofits and schools) now the locally-owned restaurant is giving back to Minnie’s Food Pantry with its Minnie’s Meals campaign.

Minnie’s Food Pantry is a Plano-based nonprofit organization that has provided over 6 million meals to our community. Through December 31 every time a customer orders at Dillas (pronounced “dill-uhs”) he can simply “make it a Minnie’s Meal” and donate 30 cents, which Dillas will match, directly to Minnie’s Food Pantry.

“Hunger is a growing problem in Texas. One out of five children suffer from hunger and the numbers continue to increase,” said Cheryl “Action” Jackson, founder of Minnie’s Food Pantry. “We are very excited to be partnering with Dillas to help fight hunger. Most people don’t realize that for just thirty cents we can provide a meal to someone in need.”

The Minnie’s Meals campaign is part of Dillas’ Two by 25 program, a commitment the restaurant has made to pour $2 million back into the North Texas community by 2025.

“Giving back is a huge part of the culture at Dillas. Since the day we opened our first location, we have returned a percentage of sales back to the community. Every employee partners in this which is part of what makes Dillas special,” said founder Kyle Gordon. “Working together, our customers and Team Members will be able to feed thousands of people in need every month.”
