August 30, 2017

If you have family or friends staying with you who evacuated the cities and towns along the Texas coast or you yourself are a Hurricane Harvey evacuee, Tarrant Area Food Bank can be a resource for you. Visit our Find Food Map to locate a food pantry near you.

Tarrant Area Food Bank serves hungry families and individuals directly, as well as through partner food pantries in 13 North Texas counties all year long. We are committed to making sure that everyone has nutritious food to eat.

Volunteers

We are very grateful for all of the volunteers who have stepped up to help us sort and pack food for distribution in Quality Control. Due to the amazing response, volunteer shifts in Quality Control for the coming weeks are very limited. We encourage those interested in volunteering to look at our schedule to find the next available shifts. We rely on volunteers like you to get nutritious food out to the community. Thanks for your support.
