G4G DFW + North Texas Food Bank
September 24, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Gay for Good DFW is partnering with North Texas Food Bank to bridge the hunger gap for children, seniors, and families in North Texas.
The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit hunger-relief organization operating a state-of the-art volunteer and distribution center in Plano. Last year, the Food Bank worked hard in partnership with member agencies from the Feeding Network to provide access to more than 97 million nutritious meals across a diverse 13-county service area.
The need for hunger relief is complex and to meet the continued demand, the NTFB is always working to increase food distribution efforts and bridge the hunger gap for children, seniors, and families in North Texas. We can help to support NTFB’s mission by volunteering at the Perot Family Campus distribution center. Volunteers will help sort and pack food for distribution.
