Welcome to The Community Food Bank of Fort Worth!
Open Monday - Friday 9:00am to 2:00pm,
In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 Americans, hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different. Right now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. We all know and are in contact with people affected by hunger, even though we might not be aware of it.
The Community Food Bank has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a soup kitchen over 28 years ago. While the name has changed over the years, our dedication of feeding families and feeding hope in Tarrant County remains the same. With a new facility and new leadership, the Community Food Bank is the only food bank directly feeding families and feeding hope in our community.
In Tarrant County, 12.1% of residents are low-income and qualify for public assistance and one in four children go to bed hungry each night. Shockingly, in Fort Worth, 33% of our population is living in poverty and many families have no means to feed their families! Community Food Bank serves an average of 400 plus families daily. Sadly, this number greatly increased since we reopened our pantry doors in 2010.
The CFB operates several social services programs and collaborates with other agencies to improve its clients’ physical and emotional well-being.
- Working with the Tarrant County Workforce Solutions in training TANF clients with skills to look for employment in the future.
- Partnering with the Health and Human Service Department to provide a SNAP/ TANF/ Medicare Program for our families.
Partnering with other non profit agencies that accepts CFB client referrals for home goods services.
An expanded Food Collection Outreach Program so various retailers and wholesalers can donate more food items.
Simply put, with hope, one can achieve anything. We strive every day to provide the underserved residents in Tarrant County with the building blocks they each need to create a successful and personally meaningful life, a stable environment and a hot meal for nurishment. Our caring, respectful, family-oriented staff and volunteers help strengthen the future by giving everyone the tools they need to live healthy, stable live.
DF2FM Pet Food Pantry is a valued partner to Community Food Bank. Because of their generousity our clients in need are able to feed their four legged loved ones and keep them a part of their family. DF2FM supporters and volunteers provide a service that benfits our community at large.
