Rotary Club of Park Cities Provides Mobile Food Pantry 
11-16-2015 News Release
To purchase the first Mobile Food Pantry in the DFW Metroplex, the Rotary Club of Park Cities (RCPC), partnering with Texas Capital Bank (TCB) will present a check to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) at noon, Friday, December 11. RCPC members will meet with leaders of TCB at the NTFB’s new headquarters,at the south end of the Dallas Farmers Market.
This partnership, targeting our community’s underserved residents, became especially urgent when the Texas state legislature’s House Bill 1485, which had passed three readings, failed in the last minute. Too many legislators were physically absent, so the bill was thrown out.  
The specially designed mobile food pantry is expected to be operational by January, will enable the NTFB to provide services to clients that its usual big trucks can’t reach. Residents in high-need areas, such as apartment complexes, housing units and senior citizens facilities will receive the equivalent of more than 830,000 meals delivered annually. 
“Our plans for helping reduce the huge issue of hunger in North Texas will provide an estimated 1 million pounds of nutritious food and fresh produce each year,” says RCPC President Karen Farris. One in six residents of NTFB’s Dallas County service area are food deprived, affecting one in four children, according to Feeding America estimates.
