$1,400,000 Goal

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a hunger-relief organization that focuses on providing children, seniors and families access to nutritious foods. Through our network of nearly 500 food pantries and other community organizations, our direct feeding programs, and the help of our dedicated volunteers, we distribute more than 375,000 meals each day and about 2 million pounds per week for North Texans facing hunger. The Food Bank serves 13 counties: Collin, Dallas, Delta, Denton, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Kaufman, Lamar, Navarro, and Rockwall.

Today, we ask you to partner with us for North Texas Giving Day. You can give early starting September 1, and donate on Giving Day, Thursday, September 21. Every $1 donated provides access to 3 nutritious meals. Together, we can continue our work toward closing the hunger gap in North Texas. With your support, we know we can meet this goal. We are thankful to have you join us in this important fight against hunger and appreciate your continued support.
