Communities where no one has to go hungry
Empowering communities to eliminate hunger by providing food, education and resources through innovation and collaboration
Tarrant Area Food Bank was founded in 1982 by a group of Fort Worth citizens concerned about hunger in their community. Three months after opening in October 1982, the organization had distributed donated food to 50 charities in Fort Worth, thanks to commercial donors and a holiday food drive by the Fort Worth community. Since then, with generous donations from the food industry and community food drives, and with the help of thousands of volunteers and 300 partner charities, Tarrant Area Food Bank has distributed more than 440 million pounds of food and household products to families and individuals struggling with hunger.
