Tarrant Area Food Bank West

Tarrant Area Food Bank West is our new climate-controlled food distribution warehouse in Weatherford, TX. Just recently, we have begun to distribute food to our partner agencies and conduct our own onsite mobile food distribution to serve the Parker County residents and beyond.  This facility will be instrumental in serving meals, to those in need, each week (food, dairy, plus fresh fruit and vegetables) serving neighbors via mobile food trucks, pantries, shelters, kitchens, and youth centers across thirteen counties in North Texas.

The food bank serves residents struggling with hunger and addresses food disparity in the following counties:

  • Bosque County
  • Erath County
  • Hamilton County
  • Hood County
  • Johnson County
  • Parker County
  • Palo Pinto County
  • Somervell County

Our new Tarrant area food bank facility in Parker County includes an extra 10,000 square feet added for appliances like coolers and freezers. The space will include essential rooms like a kitchen, classroom, volunteer center, and a boardroom.

For local food availability, to support us with donations or
volunteering, please visit our website or call 817-857-7172.

The new facility address is:

112 Winners Circle,
Weatherford, TX, 76087

Which is located in the former Standard Hardware, Inc building,
just beside Canyon West Golf Course entrance.

Our Mission

In the counties that Tarrant Area Food Bank serves, one in seven people and one in four children face hunger.  US Government data shows that beef prices have increased by 14 percent, pork is up 12 percent, and poultry has increased by 6.6 percent compared to prices in December 2020. We believe that all people should have access to healthy meals. Our mission is to empower our communities by providing food, resources, and education so that no one is left hungry. We’re the primary source of donated food for many feeding programs and hunger-relief charities in the 13 counties that we serve. However, for our rural counties there is still a need for battling food insecurity.

PARKER COUNTY VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Every year, passionate volunteers in our community donate countless hours to make sure their neighbors have access to free healthy food. Tarrant Area Food Bank West supplies nutritious food to our partners in North TX counties, including Palo Pinto, Erath, Hood, Parker, Hamilton, Bosque, and Somervell.

However, before the food is distributed to families, volunteers are needed to help unpackage, sort, inspect and repackage the food in our quality control shifts. With our pantry program, you can help distribute food to people in need.

Help us combat hunger in America. We offer a variety of programs for volunteers to choose from, such as our Tarrant area food bank west distribution center, community garden program, farmers market nutrition program, mission kitchen, and our many partner agencies.  Visit our volunteer’s page to sign up for a volunteer shift today.
