Tarrant Area Food Bank hosts both annual fundraisers and annual appreciation events honoring our supporters. We are also the beneficiary of a number of annual events hosted by community groups and grocery retailers.
Notable annual events include:
Families and serious cyclists can choose to ride scenic 10, 20 or 30 mile routes from the Fort Worth Water Gardens through downtown Fort Worth, the Cultural District, and Forest Park back to the Water Gardens. Proceeds from the event benefit Tarrant Area Food Bank. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price is the Lead Rider and Honorary Chair for Gear Up to End Hunger. For more information contact Becky Delaune.
