Friday, December 4, 2015 Canned Food Drive
One of 6 people of all ages struggles with food insecurity and/or hunger, and one in four children come from families that live with uncertainty about where their next meal will come from. The faces of hunger in Tarrant Area Food Bank’s 13-county service region are Caucasian, Hispanic, African-American, Asian and Native American. They may be your neighbors or your work colleague. He or she may be the child in school sitting next to your son or daughter. TAFB serves more than 50,000 individuals in a typical week and more than 53,000 households in a typical month. In one year, 146,000 households are served.
The Arts Center will be collecting food items and checks to donate to the Tarrant Area Food Bank during the Artist Reception on Friday, December 4 from 6-9pm.
