DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The North Texas Food Bank needs donations, volunteers and money to keep up with the demand of hungry children, senior citizens and families in our area.

“Our primary concern is to respond to our Partner Agencies’ urgent need for food. Please help us, help them. This food shortage impacts food pantries, senior food programs, after school children’s programs, shelters and soup kitchens – many that you know, love and already support,” said North Texas Food Bank President and CEO Jan Pruitt.

The North Texas Food Bank saw an increase in demand over the summer months, when schools were closed and students could not receive free breakfast and lunch programs.  Over the same time period, food and cash donations dropped.  The North Texas Food Bank serves 262 agencies in 13 counties.

You can help in the following three ways:

1) Donate food at the Cockrell Hill distribution campus, 4500 S. Cockrell Hill Road.  Nutritious, family-size, non-perishable canned foods such as vegetables, fruits and meats are the most needed items.

2) Donate your time by volunteering at one of two distribution centers from Tuesday-Saturday.  Volunteers must be at least 10 years old.  Click here for more information or call 214-270-2055.

3) Donate financially.  Every $1 donation can buy three meals.  Click here to donate.
