John and I are proud to have been involved with the North Texas Food Bank for more than 30 years through leadership roles , volunteering and philanthropy . The Food Bank ’ s mission to feed our hungry neighbors with nutritious meals directly impacts the health of our community .
Although the NTFB provided 70 million nutritious meals last year , the need is closer to a staggering 92 million . One in six North Texans suffers from chronic hunger – that includes one in four children and one in six seniors . The NTFB has created a 10-year plan to close this meal gap by 2025 through a $ 55 million capital campaign , Stop Hunger Build Hope . This is the largest capital campaign for a social service organization in the history of North Texas !
We believe that this campaign will not only be a game changer in and around Dallas , but will potentially revolutionize how food banks operate throughout the country . Through collaboration with our Partner Agencies , we will be able to provide the right food at the right place at the right time .
No one in our community should suffer from hunger . Please join us in the fight to eradicate hunger .
