Mission Agape is committed to fighting food insecurity.
Mission Agape is an organization focused on addressing the challenges of food insecurity that effects Midland and surrounding counties. Since January 2012, Mission Agape has served within the Permian Basin through different community events and programs to demonstrate God’s Love in Action.

We attribute our success to Jesus Christ. He has blessed us with an incredibly giving community that donates, supports, and sacrifices their time for the good of His Kingdom and our beloved community.
Weekend Food Program “Backpack Program”
Hunger exists in the Permian Basin. 1 in 6 children in America face hunger and in Midland and surrounding counties, the stats are similar. Each Friday, there are students who go home not knowing if they are going to eat that weekend. As a step toward ending childhood hunger, Mission Agape provides a bag full of kid friendly food to over 680 students each weekend.
Mission Agape Food Pantry
Kids aren’t the only ones who go hungry. Families are hurting too. Mission Agape Food Pantry is a referral food pantry that provides emergency food assistance to 50-60 families every month. Families are referred to us by partnering schools, community organizations, and churches.
Mobile Food Outreach (Outer County)
Often times, people who live outside of Midland County are unable to receive food services in Midland because they are not a county resident. In addition, smaller towns do not have the community resources that you would find in Midland.
Therefore, to address this challenge, God called us to “cast our net” outside of Midland to serve families in other counties who struggle with food insecurity. We are serving families in Crane, Crocket, Gaines, Pecos, Reagan, Upton, and Ward Counties. We distribute 500+ meals every month.
Christmas Blessing Event
Every December, we sponsor over 500 children who are referred to us from our partnering schools. It is such a joy to bless these precious children with toys. We remove the worry parents have who are concerned about being able to provide gifts for their children. We replace this worry with smiles and love for them to share at Christmas.
School Supply Blessing Event
With rising costs of school supplies, it can be very difficult to buy new school supplies. Each year, Mission Agape holds a special school supply distribution event to help make sure each student has what they need for a successful school year. We provide school supplies to 1,100+ students. The students we serve are referred to us by our partnering schools and community partners in Midland, Greenwood, Iraan, Crane, and McCamey. We want to ensure children have necessary supplies to start a successful year.
