Providing critical information about TAFB’s mission, its website is the highly-visible access point for tens of thousands of stakeholders annually.
Due to nutrition’s impact on wellbeing, TAFB plays a crucial role in community health outcomes. Working with medical professionals, TAFB offers in-clinic pantries so patients can receive during their visits groceries tailored to remediate chronic conditions such as diabetes.
Every day, TAFB delivers fresh, perishable food to thousands of people through mobile pantries. Usually offered in food deserts, this program ensures hungry families with little access to healthy food can receive fresh nutrients in neighborhoods marked by difficulty accessing fresh, health-sustaining groceries.
FEED THE NEED
Sponsored by Mclane Foods, your donation will purchase a custom order of meal kits designed with our community in mind. By making a Feed the Need donation, you'll donate safe, socially-distanced meals to a community where the need for food is now greater than ever before.
TAFB FEEDBACK QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER
The official annual sponsor of FEEDBACK, TAFB’s quarterly newsletter, distributed to over 40,000 households. FEEDBACK highlights community partnerships and the lives changed through TAFB’s services.
School pantries allow struggling families to access nutritious food conveniently at a pantry located at their child’s school. The goal is to meet the immediate hunger need of not only the student, but each family member living in the home.
LAST MILE HOME DELIVERY
TAFB partners with Catholic Charities and Meals on Wheels in two different programs to ensure that a lack of mobility among the elderly and other home-bound persons is not a bar to food access. Help ensure that the most vulnerable receive weekly supplies of ready-to-heat meals and bags of fresh produce.
Texas farmers need a market for their produce; struggling mothers need to feed their families. In this innovative program, TAFB links the two by holding farmers markets at WIC clinics. Along with fresh fruits and vegetables from the farmers, TAFB provides other groceries and specific items for infants, such as diapers and vitamins.
TAFB’s Community Garden program teaches partner agencies to create their own gardens, bringing a sustainable and low-cost source of produce to many different neighborhoods.
SPONSOR A TRUCKLOAD
Through Seasonal Harvest, your donation will sponsor a truckload of food that nourishes our community. From fresh produce to hearty meats, your donation will bring in thousands of nutritious meals for local families.
Providing one million meals per week requires a substantial logistics operation- and expense. Truck sponsors can ensure food gets to hungry families, along with high-profile recognition on trucks crossing a 13-county service area.
Typically TAFB converts each dollar of revenue into five meals for hungry families. Within a matching campaign gifts are doubled, meaning 10 meals can be provided with each dollar donated up to a certain amount. The increased return on investment and excitement that comes from a united, community effort catches the attention of TAFB supporters and ensures brand affinity.
• Seasonal Matches, such as the holidays, back-to-school and spring produce appeals.
• North Texas Giving Day Match, when each September North Texans support their favorite charity through a one-day festival of online giving.
• Volunteer matches challenging all TAFB volunteers during a month to increase the impact of their gift of time with financial support.
