Why We Advocate for Hunger Relief
The North Texas Food Bank advocates to protect and defend policies that seek to close the hunger gap at the federal, state, and local levels.
Our advocacy program relies on passionate people to help us achieve our mission and fight for those who suffer from hunger. 45% of the meals we provide access to are tied to government programs. Protecting and strengthening these programs allows NTFB to realize our vision of a hunger-free healthy North Texas.
