MORE INFO: Catholic Charities Dallas (CCD) is one of the leading social service providers in the greater Dallas area. Our mission is to call the community to action to join us in addressing the root causes of poverty, hunger, and homelessness by serving, educating, and empowering all those in need.

The COVID-19 pandemic created catastrophic financial hardships for families in our communities. CCD jumped into action, scaling up its services and programs to meet the urgent and continuing needs, particularly around hunger and housing insecurity.

At our last mega food distribution event on March 12, 2021, CCD distributed food and diapers to 1,118 households, providing nearly 61,000 meals to those in need.
