Tarrant Area Food Bank Launches First Gift Catalog

The Fort Worth, Texas-based Tarrant Area Food Bank has launched its first Holidays of Hope Gift catalog. In this new giving opportunity, the community has the ability to feed those in need, in honor of those they love.

The holiday season brings uncertainty for many families as to where their next meal will come from, causing food insecurity to be magnified in the Tarrant area. Inflation is combining with supply chain squeezes to dampen the purchasing power of both food banks and clients, while also spiking gas and transportation costs.

The Tarrant Area Food Bank is responding by pursuing a number of strategies, including calling upon government agencies for help, building up pathways for increased produce distribution, expanding relationships with grocer-donors and ramping up fundraising efforts, such as the Holidays of Hope Gift Catalogue.

Gifts made through the catalog, while symbolic, will support Tarrant Area Food Bank’s mission to end hunger in our community. “Currently, we are spending more than we had budgeted for on food purchasing,” said Julie Butner, president and CEO. “We see this as a way that the Tarrant Area community can further help those in need during the holiday season”.

The digital catalog can be viewed at tafb.org/gifts. Gifts range from healthy food items such as beans, produce and chicken to support for TAFB programs such as Community Gardens and Home Delivery. Once donation is made, the honoree will receive a special e-card to notify them of their gift.

Through its network of more than 450 partner agencies, Tarrant Area Food Bank provides access to more than 1 million nutritious meals weekly to children and adults facing hunger. This work has resulted in access to 55 million nutritious meals in 2021. For more information, visit TAFB.org.
