Protection for Food Aid Charities

State and federal laws protect food aid charities, businesses, governmental entities and individuals who donate food in good faith from civil or criminal liability should such donated food later cause harm to a recipient. Following standard food safety practices helps providers of donated food avoid distributing unsafe product.

TAFB Programs and Services for Partner Agencies

  • Nutrition Services: Nutrition and Food Safety Education is provided by our Nutrition Services team. They offer educational materials, hands-on courses and workshops for heads of households, children, families and senior citizens.  
  • Community Gardens: This initiative guides and inspires communities to grow their own produce and to share their excess with those at risk of hunger and malnutrition.
  • SNAP Assistance:  Tarrant Area Food Bank helps families and individuals access public assistance programs to supplement their nutrition and protect their health. Our SNAP/FoodStamp outreach staff are available to ensure that anyone who is eligible for public nutrition and health benefits is aware of the program and has the opportunity  to apply for these benefits.
