TAFB & Partners to Close White Settlement Mobile Pantry

For the past six years, Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) has worked in partnership with Western Hills Church of Christ and Co-Operative Industries Aerospace & Defense to distribute food to around 300 White Settlement families each month.As the church is preparing to move soon, the mobile food pantry located at 1401 S. Cherry Lane in White Settlement will be closing as of June 3, 2017.

White Settlement residents in need of food assistance can get those needs met at the following locations:

Senior Center, 8211 White Settlement RoadWhite Settlement, TX 76108

St. Peters Catholic Church, 1201 S. Cherry LaneWhite Settlement, TX 76108

West Aid, 7940 Camp Bowie WestFort Worth, TX 76116

Northwest Mobile Pantry, 5701 Azle Ave.Fort Worth, TX 76114

Additional locations are available at www.tafb.org/find-food.

“We are incredibly grateful for the partnership we’ve had with Western Hills Church of Christ and Co-Operative Industries Aerospace & Defense for the past six years,” said Barb Ewen, senior director of food programs, TAFB. “Together, we’ve fed thousands of White Settlement residents.”

The church is planning on re-locating their facility which makes a change in feeding locations necessary, but Ewen says that everyone who needs food will have a place to get food. “Because this one location is closing doesn’t mean we won’t still feed folks. While we’re looking for a new mobile location, food can be picked up at a variety of other nearby locations by looking under “Find Food” on our website at www.tafb.org.
