STOP HUNGER Co-Chairs: Pam & John Beckert With the generous support of community donors, the North Texas Food Bank launched a $55 million campaign in February 2017. Raised funds will be used both for “brick and mortar” projects – like a new facility in Plano – as well as for investments for NTFB Partner Agencies, and for technology solutions that will better connect social service organizations and healthcare providers across North Texas.
