NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – There are more than 800,000 people in North Texas who go hungry on a daily basis.

The North Texas Food Bank is a hunger relief organization working to end food insecurity in our area. Last year, they provided access to almost 72 million meals to children, families and seniors, but the need continues to grow. One in six adults and one in four children is food insecure in North Texas.

With NTFB, there are many ways you can get involved to make an impact on our community.

NTFB provides 190,000 meals each day for hungry children, seniors and families but the need for nutritious meals continues to grow.
