NTFB's Most Needed Items

Healthy bodies and minds require nutritious meals to thrive!

Currently 87% of all food items distributed by the North Texas Food Bank are identified as "nutritious" by Feeding America. We encourage our food donors to give the most nutritious items whenever possible to ensure we are contributing to the good health of those we serve, and to help us to reach our goal of 100% nutritious food distributed.

Use the list below to determine what to bring to your organization's Canned Food Drive and share this with other food drive participants!

- Low-Sodium Canned Vegetables

- Dried or Canned Beans

- Canned Tuna or Chicken

- Whole-Grain Rice or Pasta

- Healthy Cereal

- Peanut Butter

Please note:

*Policies set forth by Feeding America prohibit NTFB from accepting baby food or formula collected through Canned Food Drives.

*Please refrain from donating glass containers as they may break during transport.
