Partnering with NTFB to Distribute Food

NTFB partners with hundreds of local non-profit organizations throughout our 13-county service area to distribute food to those in need. As part of our 10-year plan to meet the current need for food assistance in our community, Partner Agencies will be chosen through a strategic selection process that includes the agency's capacity to distribute food and the food assistance needs in the agency's geographic area.

Other ways to Join the Fight Against Hunger

• If you are interested in learning more on how to establish a food pantry, we invite you to review our Fighting Hunger 101 document for helpful information and tips.
• If you are currently serving clients in Dallas County, you may consider collaborating with our Redistribution partner, Crossroads Community Services (CCS). Sites who partner with CCS pick up nutritious groceries in bulk from their downtown facility for distribution in their own communities. This unique model allows smaller organizations to provide high quality food assistance at the lowest possible cost. For more information about the process of becoming a Community Distribution Partner site, view the brochure here.
• Are you a staff member of a local school interested in serving your students in need? The NTFB Food 4 Kids program might be a great fit for you. Food 4 Kids provides backpacks full of nonperishable, kid-friendly food to students in need. Learn more information about the Food 4 Kids program here.
