Our food trucks and container pantry provide meals across North Texas
“One driver, one truck, thousands served.”
This is the mantra of our Hunger Services team, which they fulfill every day.
Our four mobile food trucks are currently serving at full capacity in partnership with 93 entities across the nine counties of the Diocese of Dallas. During the 2022 fiscal year, our Hunger Services team distributed a total of 5,025,391 meals to 37,275 families across North Texas.
We are proud to announce that we will be adding a fifth mobile food truck in partnership with North Texas Food Bank, which will allow us to distribute meals at an additional 32 mobile food drops per month and will elevate our service capacity to over eight million meals for families in need across North Texas.
Over in Ennis, families are able to visit our container pantry and hand-pick their groceries. Due to the success of the Ennis container pantry, which opened in November of 2021, Hunger Services has developed a reputable presence in Ellis County and has been able to assist an even greater number of families in need. Our team is currently exploring the possibility of adding a second container pantry to the fleet in order to reach even more families in need.
The Hunger Services team works efficiently and with incredible results to eliminate hunger in North Texas. However, this operation does not come without significant cost, amounting to over $1.2 million dollars per year to sustain the hunger program. We are so grateful for our many generous donors who help cover this cost so that families in need may have access to the fresh pantry items they desperately need.
If you would like to make a contribution to the hunger program, you can sign up for one of our many opportunities for volunteerism or make a monetary donation. Your gift impacts families across North Texas by providing them with food security and hope.
