About the North Texas Food Bank
In 1982, the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) was established by Jo Curtis, Kathryn Hall, Lorraine Griffin Kircher, and Liz Minyard. The community leaders decided to address the critical issue of hunger in our community by distributing donations of surplus food and grocery products through a network of charitable organizations.
Today, NTFB continues the fight against hunger as a certified member of the Feeding America Food Bank Network. Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, solicits food and grocery products from national suppliers, distributes them through more than 200 food banks.
