A MESSAGE FROM TRISHA CUNNINGHAM,
PRESIDENT AND CEO OF NTFB
Thank you for your collaboration.
Every meal makes a difference!
When I reflect on our progress in fiscal year 2017-2018,
an important theme that is woven throughout this time is
collaboration. Through expanded partnerships, program
advancements, new volunteer initiatives and the conclusion of
a historical capital campaign, key collaborations propelled our
critical work to close the hunger gap in North Texas. Thank you
for giving your time, your generous gifts and your heart to our
mission – feeding our hungry neighbors. Together we provided
access to almost 72 million nutritious meals throughout our
13-county service area. Each meal represents an exchange of
compassion and hope – a community unifying to stop hunger.
At the North Texas Food Bank, our dedicated staff and community
partners continue to serve more food insecure children, seniors
and families because of your collective support through various
fundraising channels. When Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on
the Texas Coast, you worked alongside our Mass Care Task Force,
and together we supplied more than 120,000 pounds of food to
our fellow Texans impacted by this devastating storm.
During the Stop Hunger Build Hope campaign, you invested in our
local food assistance infrastructure and enabled the completion of
our new distribution center, the Perot Family Campus. Unveiling
this state-of-the-art facility was a significant highlight of our year,
and embodies our commitment to empower the work of our
partners, ensuring our collaborations are effectively meeting the
diverse needs of all neighbors.
Through the collaborative support of the North Texas community,
we are well on our way to achieving our goal of providing access
to 92 million nutritious meals annually by 2025. Our neighbors
do not have to be hungry, children do not have to eat only on
school days and seniors do not have to choose between medicine
and food. We can close the hunger gap in North Texas, but it will
take each of us extending our support and joining together to
feed our hungry neighbors. Please continue to help us build this
momentum, and remember, every meal makes a difference.
NTFB works collaboratively with
community partners who host our Mobile
Pantry trucks, enabling NTFB to bring
more nutritious foods to our neighbors
in high-need, hard-to-reach areas
throughout North Texas.
