在北德克萨斯州,每 5 个孩子中就有 1 个粮食不安全。这就是 NTFB 寻求创新和有效的解决方案来喂养我们社区中饥饿儿童的原因。

通过我们的儿童计划,我们与 13 个县服务区的学校和社会服务计划合作,在整个学年和夏季为有需要的孩子分发和提供营养食品。

食物 4 个孩子 每周为多达 11,000 名长期饥饿的儿童提供服务

The NTFB works with educators to identify chronically hungry students and provide them with a bag full of nutritious, nonperishable, kid-friendly food each Friday afternoon. The Food 4 Kids program operates at more than 250 elementary and middle schools in North Texas, and ensures children have access to food when they’re at home during the weekend.

Qualifying schools that are interested can email To participate, elementary schools must have at least 50% of their students qualifying for free/reduced lunch, and middle schools must have at least 40% qualifying for free/reduced meals.

NTFB School Pantries provided more than 1.8 million nutritious meals across 40 sites during the 2022 - 2023 school year.



Through 40 School Pantry sites, NTFB works with campuses to distribute nutritious, non-perishable items plus produce. These operate at elementary, middle and high schools as well as on 15 college campuses, and they serve students, their families and staff. Some pantries operate as drive-through distributions while others have grab-and-go spaces set up inside the school.

Schools interested in participating, can email for more information. To participate, primary and secondary schools must have at least 90% of their students qualifying for free/reduced meals


About half of NTFB’s school pantries continue operating during the summer, including several college pantries that are open to the greater community. NTFB also works with its partners, including distribution hub Sharing Life, to continue providing access to Food 4 Kids bags during the summer. NTFB continues to stay engaged with Summer Food Service Program providers, and it works to ensure its 500 partner pantries and community organizations are equipped to meet the increased need for food assistance that can occur during the summer months when school meals are not available.
