The Limelight: North Texas Food Bank

Food for thought: the North Texas Food Bank was established in 1982 specifically to address the important issue of hunger in North Texas. Since then, the food bank has worked to secure donations of wholesome foods and grocery products they then share and distribute through a large network of charitable organizations that feed the hungry.

The North Texas Food Bank serves 13 North Texas counties including: Dallas, Denton, Collin, Fannin, Rockwall, Hunt, Grayson, Kaufman, Ellis, Navarro, Lamar, Delta, and Hopkins. This summer, the non-profit organization is actively working to insure that children are cared for and administered the proper nutrition they need. As they are not insured the daily lunch they can count on during the school year, the summer months are the time of year when kids in North Texas are most hungry. The food bank is hosting an array of summer events including: a virtual canned food drive and an online food stamp challenge- inviting you to test living off of the $46.62 a week provided by food stamps.
