Texas – North Texas Food Bank will continue to serve the community in the upcoming period after they received a huge donation that will be enough to provide 300,000 meals to hungry North Texans.
According to the North Texas Food Bank officials, Atmos Energy donated $100,000 recently as a part of their “Fueling Safe and Thriving Communities” drive.
This is just part of the Atmos Energy program that helps 1,400 communities Atmos serves and they provide educational, literacy, energy assistance, and food security resources.
As we already reported multiple times, North Texas Food Bank can provide up to three meals for every dollar they receive in donation.
“We are thankful for corporate partners like Atmos Energy that are bridging the gap between hunger and help in North Texas,” said Trisha Cunningham, North Texas Food Bank president and CEO. “Their gift addresses the significant hunger needs in our community, including the 1 in 5 children who are facing food insecurity. We are deeply grateful for Atmos Energy’s trust and will use these funds to advance our mission of a hunger-free and healthy North Texas.”
“Research tells us that food insecurity and health issues often go hand-in-hand,” said Oric Walker, Atmos Energy vice president of public affairs. “Hundreds of thousands of families in need turn to the North Texas Food Bank for access to nutritious foods. The NTFB then goes a step beyond to educate families, seniors, and children about eating nutritiously on a budget, and they partner with community gardens that offer more access to fresh, locally grown produce.”
