Sharing Stories of Hunger and Hope: NTFB’s Spring Newsletter

March 07, 2019
by Caroline Mandel

This week the spring issue of Around the Table, the North Texas Food Bank’s newsletter, will arrive in mailboxes.

Within this issue, you’ll read about Food Bank news and upcoming events, and meet several neighbors who have struggled to put food on the table. You’ll meet Linda, Maria, Azzie and other neighbors who now receive food assistance and no longer have to choose between food and other critical necessities.

At the North Texas Food Bank, we are committed to sharing our neighbors’ experiences with hunger, because we believe it is important to understand the diverse hardships that so many in our community face day in and day out. When you hear a firsthand account or read about the trials of being hungry, you are provided a glimpse into the lives of more than 800,000 of our neighbors who live in food-insecure households throughout North Texas. Thankfully, for many of these neighbors, their stories include much-needed relief thanks to programs, services and partnerships that are part of the North Texas Food Bank’s Feeding Network.

Each hungry neighbor has their own unique experience, nonetheless, our goal at the Food Bank remains constant. We are committed to providing access to healthy food for our hungry neighbors, and providing the support needed to change the pervasive narrative of hunger in our community. We share stories of hunger to highlight the great need in North Texas, as well as our progress made in becoming a hunger-free, healthy North Texas. Linda’s story now includes both nutritious foods and her heart medicine. With support from the North Texas Food Bank, she no longer has to choose between food on the table or her prescription.
