Have you ever wondered where your next meal is coming from or how to provide a healthy meal to your children when schools are closed?

To fill the need, the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) provided over 161 million meals to families in need between March 20, 2020, and June 30, 2021. This support continues as families begin to recover, and FedEx continues to be a part of the journey.
