How the Food Bank Works

As a central clearinghouse for donated food and groceries, Tarrant Area Food Bank receives fresh, frozen and nonperishable food donated by the food industry and the community. Dedicated volunteers help sort, inspect and repackage the food, which is then distributed to our network of 300 Partner Agencies serving children, the elderly, people experiencing homelessness, and other Texans in need. The people who generously donate their time, funds and skills to TAFB help make the services we provide to the community possible.
