Young Advocates Council


We are thrilled to introduce the North Texas Food Bank's Young Advocates Council! This opportunity engages dedicated and entrepreneurial high school students at the premiere hunger-relief organization in North Texas.

Join our Board of Directors, Young Professionals, NTFB's Executive Leadership, and your peers from across North Texas as we work toward closing the meal gap in the Metroplex. Your gift of time and effort will not only help you to perfect valuable skills for college and your career, but you will have a profound and lasting impact on your North Texas neighbors.
