Meet Angela and Knox – NTFB Volunteers

April 17, 2019

What started as a way for her older son to gain community service hours for school activities, quickly blossomed into a regular, family commitment. Angela and her younger son, Knox, can now be found on the distribution center floor at the Perot Family Campus, or out in the community helping with Mobile Pantry truck deliveries.

This mother-son duo prefers to volunteer where they can directly interact with clients, and while volunteering with the Mobile Pantry team, they assist with intake, greeting clients, bagging food, clean up and organization. When asked why it is important to serve the community, Angela explains that she believes “to whom much is given, much is expected.”

Since she began volunteering with NTFB, Angela has been surprised to learn that hunger “is more prevalent than she originally thought.” Angela is not alone – many are shocked to learn that one in six of our North Texas neighbors are food-insecure, and does not know where they will find their next healthy meal.

Thanks to Angela and her family, NTFB is spreading the word about hunger in our community, reaching more hungry neighbors and providing access to more healthy foods.
