More than 185,000 children in the Dallas area live in homes without enough food. The North Texas Foodbank supplies as many as 10,000 children each week with backpacks of food they can take home with them for the weekend through their Food 4 Kids program.
Children take home the backpacks and return them on Monday so they can be filled again for the next weekend. It costs approximately $5 to fill each backpack with enough food to provide for about 60 percent of the child’s weekend nutritional needs.
The Walnut Hill PTA minions want to help the North Texas Foodbank provide food for hungry children and are hosting a canned food drive and fundraiser as part of their Winter Wonderland Holiday Market. Please join them in supporting the North Texas Foodbank.
