Food Pantries and Partner Agencies

We work with food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to help those in need.

NTFB works closely with more than 200 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other facilities to ensure that we get nutritious food to those who need it. These strategic partnerships are critical to fighting hunger in North Texas. In addition to providing food to these critical partners, we also work with these organizations to provide complementary nutrition-related programs including SNAP benefits outreach services, and nutrition-education workshops and courses.

Mobile Pantries

Like a market on wheels, the North Texas Food Bank's Mobile Pantry program is a traveling pantry that delivers nutritious food, including fresh produce and refrigerated items, directly to communities with high need.

Mobile Pantry's priority is to collaborate with NTFB Partner Agencies and other community organizations serving in high-need areas, such as, Food Deserts. The purpose of this mobile program is to provide or improve access to fresh, perishable and other healthy grocery products in areas where local agencies have limited or no capacity for refrigeration and/or freezer storage. Through Mobile Pantry, participating households receive up to 50 pounds of food per visit.

 

*NTFB is not currently accepting new applications for Mobile Pantry visits during COVID-19 response but is partnering with community organizations across NTFB’s service area to provide drive-through food distribution for families and individuals facing food insecurity. Our current schedule of drive-through mobile pantry sites is available here.

Food 4 Paws

Many consider their pets to be members of the family. When families are experiencing hunger, purchasing pet food can seem completely out of reach. The Food 4 Paws program enables the large-scale distribution of dog and cat food to families and individuals seeking assistance through NTFB Partner Agencies. NTFB is proud to offer dog and cat food at no handling fee for agencies that choose to offer it.

Help us keep these successful programs thriving!
