In response to the outbreak, TAFB has strategically and immediately focused on feeding the most vulnerable populations: seniors, children, the homeless, and those just placed in emergency need due to job losses.
New norms of social distancing and soaring need have required TAFB to alter its distribution model, straining logistics and surpassing current capacity. TAFB has increased distribution through its network of 330 partners by 57 percent and we have added weekly Mega Mobile Markets to solve for the increased need in our community. And we have reached capacity with current equipment.
Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) is committed now more than ever to the safety and well-being of our staff, partners and the communities that we serve. Tarrant Area Food Bank constantly monitors developments regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), relying on information from the CDC, Tarrant County Public Health, and the City of Fort Worth.
We are taking abundant precaution following recommendations of the CDC to prevent the spread of germs. Throughout this time, TAFB must remain committed to our mission to alleviate local hunger. Since we are no longer able to recruit volunteers from the public sector, your monetary support is needed now more than ever.
- Our distribution of healthy food has increased 43% since last year
- Pantries transitioned to drive through to reduce face-to-face interaction and crowding
