ICYMI: NTFB is Moving to Plano!

May 30, 2018
by Liana Solis

 

September is going to be a busy time for the North Texas Food Bank! With special events revolving around the opening of our new Distribution Center, the Perot Family Campus, we are excited for you to be a part of our journey to Collin County. We recognize that change is exciting, but could lead to questions. As such, we wanted to assure you that while our distribution facility is moving north, our team will continue to serve partners across our entire 13-county service area, as we have for many years.

Our move to Plano will allow us to:

  • Have a new space that will be built exclusively for NTFB’s needs and will triple our refrigerated space – when you compare it to our current warehouses, it is three times the size.
  • Reduce inefficiencies from our two current facilities as we streamline operations into one location more central to our 13-county service area.
  • Operate from a central location to our entire service area which will allow for better engagement with businesses, volunteers and donors that will help us ensure we can continue to put food on the table for our neighbors in need.
  • Overall, enable us to reach our goal of providing 92 million meals to hungry North Texans by 2025.

Most importantly we are taking this important step because we know the issue of hunger is not going away, and we need the support of the broader North Texas community to meet the hunger needs in our region.

This exciting change will allow us the opportunity to host a historic event: our grand opening!

    Congratulations ! However, what is the plan to serve children, the elderly, and families in the 7523,75216, and 75241 zip codes ? Who will be responsible for distributing food in places where food deserts and a lack of grocery stores are now ? Will volunteer opportunities and family health classes be farther away from those who need to participate in them most ? Will the new building actually be a central point in North Texas ? Some grants and programs are perceivably received with data that comes from the most underserved, under mentored communities, . Unfortunately, even with some programs that NTFB have for underserved communites, the classes are not offered to entire families, but only as a Summer stint to have a Summer program.,and yet , it appears that these areas will be overlooked or at the mercy of some agencies who think they own the food and treat the served as charity cases. As an educator, I know and have witnessed that You have done some great work, we just pray that you won’t forget the Cherry Valley, Alta Mesa Park. And South Oak Cliff communities. Thank you, be blessed, and enjoy your new facility immensely.
