Trisha Cunningham

Trisha Cunningham is President and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB), a $130 million nonprofit leading the fight against hunger in North Texas. Trisha and her team of 170 employees and 41,000 volunteers work with more than 200 partner agencies from the NTFB Feeding Network to provide access to almost 77 million meals annually across a diverse 13-county service area. For more than 30 years, Trisha has served her community in various capacities, most recently as Chief Citizenship Officer at Texas Instruments (TI). Her commitment to nourishing her neighbors is evident in her vast civic involvement, and when she is not volunteering her time in the community, she can be found spending time with her family.
