The Indian American Council of the North
Texas Food Bank
The Indian American Council of the North Texas Food Bank
(NTFB IAC) was formed in September 2017 to raise awareness,
improve engagement and encourage active volunteering
as well as channel resources and contributions of the Indian
American community towards NTFB’s mission of a hunger-
free community. Founded and led by Aradhana (Anna) and
Raj Asava, the IAC committed to raising food and funds for the
Food Bank through the Million Meal March. A little less than a
year after inception, the IAC has raised one million meals and
In the spirit of “give where you live,” the IAC strives for the
Indian American community to be recognized as a leader in
the fight against hunger in North Texas. With a rally cry of
“Hunger Mitao!” which translates to “wipe-out hunger,” they
hope to expand efforts to other communities and regions,
broadening their reach to wipe out hunger in
North Texas and beyond.
The IAC aims to mobilize the vibrant Indian American community
to actively volunteer and raise food and funds for NTFB.
