North Texas Food Bank's 15th Annual Letter                                      Writing Campaign 

Please join us in raising funds to feed hungry children in North Texas through the North Texas Food Bank’s 15th Annual Letter Writing campaign! Your gift will help us achieve our goal of providing 1.5 million meals to hungry children across North Texas.

The Need

1 in 4 children are food insecure in the North Texas Food Bank’s 13-county service area – more than 300,000 children. These numbers are likely to rise as we continue to feel the impact of COVID-19.

Without adequate nourishment, food-insecure students achieve less academically and are more likely to repeat a grade level than their peers with higher food security. With support from people like you, however, we can provide children both the nutrition they need for healthy development and the peace of mind that fosters success in the classroom and exploration beyond its walls.

The North Texas Food Bank’s Solution

NTFB works with schools and social service programs to distribute nutritious food to kids in need throughout the school year and the summer months. The Letter Writing Campaign raises critical funds to support these initiatives:

  • Food 4 Kids: provides backpacks full of nutritious, nonperishable, kid-                        friendly food.
  • School Pantry Program: provides an abundance of fresh produce and                         nonperishable items right on campus at local schools.
  • Partner Agencies: Most children are served through our partner agency                    network of over 200 food pantries, food kitchens and shelters.

NTFB’s team remains flexible to the most strategic and efficient ways to continue their programs and distribute food to those in need in a very fluid environment. We know the 2020/2021 school year will look different at the campuses, but we also know the need for NTFB’s programs will be stronger than ever as the effects of COVID-19 continue to be felt. Your support allows the food bank to respond to this need, be flexible in their approaches, and keep children healthy, active and safe.

Thank you for joining us in the fight to end           childhood hunger in North Texas. We are grateful for your support!
