NTFB fighting hunger with Mobile Food Pantry

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is bridging the hunger gap with the creation of the Mobile Pantry program. The program is coming to the Martin Luther King Community Center and West Dallas Multipurpose Center Feb. 9 and 16.

“Each stop will include fresh food for participants, nutritional education and SNAP* program assistance,” said NTFB spokesperson Anna Kurian. “The Mobile Pantry program is a critical component of NTFB’s 10-year plan to provide access to 92 million nutritious meals annually.”

The NTFB receives fresh produce, meat and canned food items provided by donors and some 200 retail partners. Their generosity provides 170,000 meals for hungry children, seniors and families in need throughout a 13-county service area.

“All donations, big or small, make a significant impact,” said Kurian. “By 2025, NTFB is hoping to increase its current daily meal output by 50 percent. With this support, we are able to provide three meals for every one dollar donated.”

Upcoming Mobile Pantry events:

  • Tuesday Feb. 9, Martin Luther King Community Center, 10 a.m. to noon.
  • Tuesday Feb. 16, West Dallas Multipurpose Center, 10 a.m. to noon.

*Photo ID, social security card(s), pay stubs, proof of any other income and proof of address are required to apply for SNAP.*
