The Center Kaufman, in partnership with the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB), will be distributing kitted food boxes through a low-touch distribution model on Wednesday, June 3.

Distribution will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. To receive food, visitors must be in a vehicle. No proof of identification is necessary. The distribution will take place from 10 a.m. until noon at Kaufman High School, 3205 S. Houston St. in Kaufman.

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit hunger-relief organization operating a state-of-the-art volunteer and distribution center in Plano — the Perot Family Campus. Last year, the Food Bank worked hard in partnership with member agencies from our feeding network to provide access to almost 77 million nutritious meals across a diverse 13-county service area. This means more than 200,000 meals per day for hungry children, seniors and families.

But the need for hunger relief in North Texas is complex and in order to meet the need the NTFB is working to increase our food distribution efforts. The goal is to provide access to 92 million nutritious meals annually by 2025.

NTFB is a member of Feeding America, a national hunger-relief organization.
