Tarrant Area Food Bank works to ensure nutritious foods are available through distribution and all special feeding programs. Additionally, nutrition education is available to Partner Agencies and other community organizations to complement our distribution of nutritious food.
Several educational programs are available to:
- Help low-income families and individuals make the most of meals by planning healthful, tasty, and low-cost meals.
- Teach adults how to stretch their food dollars through smart shopping and cooking.
- Encourage the community to enjoy all of the many health benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables, while demonstrating that it can also be affordable.
- Provide resources and training for developing local food production through Community Gardens.
- Provide recipes, fact sheets and other resources to our Partner Agencies and their clients by distributing print materials at no cost.
- Help the community provide safe, nutritious food by offering food safety training to our Partner Agencies, volunteers and staff.
