Tarrant Area Food Bank is a private 501(c)(3) not-for-profit serving Tarrant and 12 neighboring counties on the west side of the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) metropolitan area. As a North Texas food bank that serves more than Tarrant County, our name is Tarrant AREA Food Bank.
Tarrant Area Food Bank is the distribution hub of a 13-county network of hunger-relief charities and social services centers. As a central clearinghouse for donated food and groceries, the Food Bank receives fresh, frozen and nonperishable food donated by the food industry and the community. We distribute this product from our 69,000 square-foot warehouse in Fort Worth to our 300 partner agencies that serve abuse victims, children, the elderly, the chronically ill, the unemployed, the working poor, the homeless and other Texans in need.
