North Texas Food Bank to Relocate HQ to Dallas Farmers Market

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) recently announced plans to relocate the organization’s administrative headquarters to its newly acquired building in the heart of the Dallas Farmers Market (DFM). Renovations to the new headquarters site, which was formerly the DFM administration building, will begin immediately with a March 2015 target move-in date.
 
 Each day the NTFB provides access to 175,000 meals though partnerships with the 262 Partner Agencies across North Texas. The Food Bank will continue regular operations, as well as its volunteer program, at its Cockrell Hill location in South Dallas.
 
The NTFB's move to the Dallas Farmers Market is an important complement to the overall rejuvenation of the market to include renovations to Shed 1 for farmers, produce and other local products; and to Shed 2, which will include new and existing restaurants, artisanal and other vendors, and the addition of adjacent residential development with retail and free, centrally located public parking.
 
NTFB President and CEO Jan Pruitt said, "Having our offices near Downtown Dallas will connect NTFB to Dallas' thriving business district and has the potential to broaden our donor and volunteer base. Moving our administrative headquarters to the Dallas Farmers Market is an exciting part of our strategic vision to close the hunger gap in North Texas and increase the amount of food we distribute to hungry children, seniors and families."
