North Texas Food Bank

North Texas Food Bank The North Texas Food Bank is working towards a hunger-free, healthy North Texas. The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit hunger-relief organization operating a state-of-the-art volunteer and distribution center in Plano— the Perot Family Campus.

Last year, the Food Bank worked hard in partnership with member agencies from our Feeding Network to provide access to almost 77 million nutritious meals across a diverse 13-county service area— this means more than 200,000 meals per day for hungry children, seniors and families. But the need for hunger relief in North Texas is complex and in order to meet the need, the NTFB is working to increase

Your support will impact the lives of children, seniors, and families across North Texas. To learn more about the Nourish North Texas campaign, visit ntfb.org/nourishnorthtexas

Just made our annual donation 3 of 4 (2020 vibrates to the energy of 4) to the North Texas Food Bank . More families than ever in history are food insecure. So much so, that I also shop every two weeks and donate to my neighborhood's local food bank. I intend in 2021 to volunteer at my local community garden and learn to grow organic vegetables for local food banks and ourselves.
