           2009 Annual Report
         Close the Gap Year 1 of 3
                    2009 Annual Report : Close the Gap Year         1   of 3

                   A MESSAGE FROM OUR BOARD PRESIDENT


    Dear North Texas Food Bank Friends and Supporters:
                               It’s hard to believe the North Texas Food Bank embarked
                               on its campaign to Close the Gap on hunger in our
                               community one year ago. As we begin our second year
                               of this three-year initiative to provide every hungry
                               North Texan with access to the nutritious food they
                               need, I am more encouraged than ever by the unyielding
                               support of this community – especially during these
                               tough economic times.

                               The recession has brought an unprecedented number of
    families and individuals to our Member Agencies for help with food this year.
    With more North Texans suddenly finding themselves out of work or unable to
    provide for their families, we began to see the “new faces of hunger” – faces you
    might know. The economy has also had devastating effects on parents who work
    hard but simply can’t afford to make ends meet. Families living on the poverty
    line are being pushed over the edge.

    It’s because of stories like these – stories of the new faces of hunger and of those
    who are all too accustomed to the pain of an empty stomach - that the North
    Texas Food Bank never stops working to provide food to those who need it.
    And we simply couldn’t do what we do without the support of this community.
    Thanks to the generosity of philanthropic foundations, corporate partners,
    faith groups and individuals, the Food Bank distributed more than 37 million
    meals in fiscal year 2009 – a 43 percent increase over last year. We acquired more
    than 10,000 new donors during the holiday season, and we received our first
    unrestricted $1 million gift! What an incredible demonstration of generosity from
    this community – and what a testament to the commitment so many of you have
    made to join us in our work to feed those in need.

    As we begin another year, I am more hopeful than ever about the impact the
    Food Bank is making in the lives of our hungry neighbors – thanks to the support
    of friends like you. I hope you’ll continue to stand with us as we work to Close
    the Gap on hunger.


                                                    Sincerely,



                                                    W. Lee Coleman, Jr.
                                                    Board President



Imagine...A World Without Hunger.                                                          3
                  2009 Annual Report : Close the Gap Year      1   of 3


    During this recession, people’s eyes have been opened to
    how great the need is in our community. Once they see
    the thousands of hardworking parents, senior citizens
    and children going hungry every day, right here in our
    own backyard, I know our community will continue
    to respond. We must use every resource available to
    ensure the needs of our neighbors are met.”
                              - Jan Pruitt, North Texas Food Bank President & CEO


    In light of the first year of our Close the Gap campaign coming to an end, this
    observation couldn’t ring more true. The down economy has affected people
    from all demographics and neighborhoods, and although Year One of Close the
    Gap ended above the set goal, now is no time to step back and relax.

    Thousands of hard-working North Texans have recently been forced out
    of jobs they’ve had for decades. For the first time in their lives, parents and
    individuals are coming to our Member Agencies for help to feed themselves
    and their families. These people represent the “new faces of hunger” – faces you
    might know or recognize. They might live down the street from you. Their kids
    might go to school with your kids. And now, though they never thought it was
    possible, they need help to keep from going hungry.

                                                 Nancy is just one of the many
                                                 new faces of hunger who came
                                                 to one of our Member Agencies
                                                 for help with food when her
                                                 husband was laid off last April.
                                                 Despite receiving unemployment
                                                 assistance, the loss of income
                                                 was substantial. Shortly after her
                                                 husband lost his job, Nancy was
                                                 hospitalized for a blood clot in her
                                                 knee. Although she feels lucky
    to be alive, her doctor ordered her to stop working so she could fully recover.
    For months, both she and her husband were out of work. Since most of their
    unemployment money goes toward utilities and expensive medications, they
    rarely have enough left over to buy food.

    “Everything happened at once!” says Nancy. “We’ve never been through
    anything like this.”

     Fortunately, thanks to the generosity of this community, Nancy can take home
    groceries from the Share Center, a Food Bank Member Agency in Terrell.

    “If it weren’t for this place, I don’t know what I would do,” she says. “This
    means a lot to us.”

    Though North Texans like Nancy and her husband are struggling with hunger
    for the first time in their lives, there are thousands of families, individuals and
    seniors in our community living at or below
    the poverty line who are all too familiar with
    the pain of an empty stomach and being
    powerless to fix it.

    Theressa is a single mother raising her
    children on her own, plus her two nephews
    and granddaughter. She’s always worked
    hard to support her family, but she has
    several chronic illnesses that have recently
    forced her to stop working. Last year alone, she was in the hospital a total of six
    months.

    Theressa’s only income is the child support she receives. With expensive medical
    bills and medications to pay for, in addition to rent and utilities, she often
    wonders how she’s going to scrape enough money together to feed her children.


     “After I pay [the bills], there’s no
    money for food,” she says.
    But thanks to the generosity of this community, Theressa doesn’t have to worry
    about how to feed her family. She can take home nutritious groceries from New
    Hope Compassion Outreach Center, a Member Agency of the North Texas Food
    Bank.

    “Last Christmas, Mom didn’t have any money for dinner,” says Theressa’s
    12-year-old daughter, Jazmien. “Because of [the Food Bank], we were able to eat
    as a family.”

    Hunger affects North Texans from all walks of life. But thanks to generous
    donations from foundations, corporations, faith groups and individuals in our
    community like you, full stomachs are a reality for families living on the edge of
    poverty, like Theressa’s – and for those who never thought they’d need to ask
    for help, like Nancy’s.

    Thank you for joining in our passionate pursuit of a hunger-free community
    in the beginning of our Close the Gap campaign, and thank you for continuing
    your support to make Year Two even stronger than the first.

                   A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT & CEO


    Dear Friends,
    There’s a popular saying about the workforce: “Do what
    you love, and love what you do.” Without a doubt,
    serving at the helm of the North Texas Food Bank as
    we work to feed an unprecedented number of hungry
    families, children and seniors is a job I truly love.

    One reason that our work is so rewarding is the
    outpouring of support from friends in the community like
    you. We simply couldn’t feed those in need without the
    generosity of foundations, corporations, faith groups and
    individuals like you who have committed to join us in our passionate pursuit
    of a hunger-free community. You helped us distribute more than 37 million
    meals to those in need during the first year of our campaign to Close the Gap on
    hunger – and I know that with your help, we can provide even more meals as the
    campaign continues into its second year.

    The support of this community has also enabled us to expand our efforts to
    combat childhood hunger. This past summer, we provided nutritious meals
    to more than 2,500 kids through programs like Food 4 Kids, Kids Cafe and
    our newest initiative, the Summer Lunch Box program. Your support also
    helped provide backpacks of weekend food for nearly 8,000 chronically hungry
    elementary school children through the Food 4 Kids backpack program during
    the 2008-2009 school year.

     We’ve made great strides in the effort to feed those in need this year. But the
    need is still great, and we continue to face many challenges in these tough
    economic times. We can no longer get by with incremental increases in the
    amount of food we distribute. The need has surpassed all expectations and we
    will do whatever it takes to provide access to food for every hungry person in
    North Texas.

    As we head into Year Two of our Close the Gap campaign, I hope I can count on
    your continued support to help provide hungry families, children and seniors
    with increased access to the food they need to be healthy and productive citizens.
             Thank you for your partnership!


                                                    With gratitude,

    The North Texas Food Bank relieves hunger in two ways:


    1. Food Distribution- We supply donated, purchased and prepared foods to
    1,146 community-based programs, including food pantries, shelters, and soup
    kitchens. We also operate direct feeding services for children, including our
    Food 4 Kids “Back Pack Program” and Kids Cafe after school sites.


    2. Food Stamp Outreach- We work with our 291 Member Agencies to identify
    and educate families and individuals who may be eligible for SNAP benefits.*
    Our outreach team helps prepare and submit applications and advocates for
    clients who experience barriers within the system. We estimate the number of
    meals to which we help provide access through Food Stamp Outreach using data
    on applications completed, application success rates, average SNAP benefits per
    household and estimated costs per meal.


    *The Food Stamp Program was renamed the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, in 2008.

    Feeding Seniors
    Barbara hasn’t had an
    easy life. For the past 25
    years she has struggled
    with chronic depression,
    and last summer doctors
    discovered an inoperable
    brain   aneurysm.     She
    also suffers from post-
    polio   syndrome,     the
    painful after-effects of
    having contracted polio
    as a child. She’s been
    confined to a wheelchair
    for years.

    Because of these health
    issues, Barbara retired from her job at a trucking company last summer. Now her
    only income is in the form of disability assistance through her former employer –
    which isn’t nearly enough to pay for rent, utility bills, medications and groceries.


    Barbara has never had to ask for help with food before.

    But thanks to the compassion of those in this community, she knows she’s not alone.
    She can come to the White Rock Center of Hope, a Food Bank Member Agency, for
    nutritious groceries when she really needs them. She’s so thankful for the food she
    receives.


    “This food makes the difference between giving
    up and going on,” she says. “Most importantly, it
    gives me hope.”

    Summer Awareness Campaign                                    In the summer of 2009, the North
    Texas Food Bank launched its first ever Summer Awareness Campaign in order
    to increase awareness because of the economic downfall. The Food Bank was
    overwhelmed with a great response from the community and generated 81
    percent more donations than the previous summer (May 1 through June 30, see
    chart below).

     It’s a Fair Deal at the State Fair of Texas, sponsored by The
     Kroger Company, proved to be more than just a fair deal for North Texans – it
     was a hunger relief effort and a great volunteer opportunity. From October 1-15,
     fairgoers received discounted admission prices for bringing three canned food
     items for the Food Bank on Wednesdays through Kroger’s It’s a Fair Deal
     Wednesdays. Fairgoers also received discounted admission prices on opening
     day for bringing a 20-ounce Coca-Cola product to donate to the Food Bank. The
     Food Bank collected 136,683 pounds of nonperishable food, which provided
     more than 106,780 meals for those in need.


     Greater Dallas/Fort Worth Souper Bowl of Caring was
     an enormous success in its second year. From January 7 through February 1,
     2009, nonperishable foods and cash donations were collected at 217 participating
     Albertsons, Central Market, The Kroger Company and Tom Thumb grocery
     stores. Many local schools, faith-based organizations and youth groups collected
     food and funds, as well. More than 220,960 pounds of nonperishable food and
     $81,431 were collected to benefit the North Texas Food Bank. Thank you to our
     grocery and media partners and all who participated to help make this food
     drive a success!


     Whole Foods Giving Tree,                   presented by Whole Foods Market,
     encourages customers to buy a paper ornament to decorate the store’s Giving
     Tree throughout the month of December. Customers have the opportunity
     to donate in any dollar amount and all proceeds go to the Food Bank. Since
     the close of 2008 brought increased economic uncertainty, Whole Foods team
     members shared the story of hunger with their customers to inspire giving. They
     saw donations increase by 21 percent over last year, bringing the total to $32,000
     to help feed hungry North Texans.

     6 through 14. All food items were donated to the Food Bank at the event’s
     conclusion. This year’s canstruction brought in 87,234 pounds of food and more
     than $10,800, translating into nearly 111,500 meals! We deeply appreciate the

Marcus for its support.

                        Feeding Families
                        Dorothy Hamilton

                        Dorothy’s daughter and four grandkids have been living with her
                        in order to make ends meet. But a few months ago, her daughter
                        lost her job. The difficult job market has made it hard for her to
                        find work, so right now Dorothy is supporting the entire family
                        by working for a catering business at a local school. Her income
                        just isn’t enough to cover the cost of rent, utilities and food for
                        six people.

   Fortunately, Dorothy knows there’s a place she can go when she and her daughter
   need help to feed the children. Thanks to the generous support of this community,
   they can take home nutritious groceries from Holy Trinity Center, a North Texas
   Food Bank Member Agency in Dallas. Dorothy is so thankful for the food and
   compassion they receive.

   “Thank you!” she says with genuine appreciation. “You don’t know how much it
   helps. Keep doing what you’re doing – you’re such a blessing.”

     continuing education college credits from El Centro Community College.

     Charitable Produce Center Founded in 1994 with Louise Gartner’s
     vision, the Charitable Produce Center was designed to transform the large amount
     of waste in the fresh produce market into a source of nourishment for hungry
     North Texans. The Food Bank extended this concept in 1999 with a grant from
     Kraft Foods, Inc., by developing the Rural Produce Initiative to distribute fresh
     produce to Member Agencies outside of Dallas County each week. In fiscal year
     2009, the program provided more than 3,501,250 pounds of produce throughout all
     13 counties in the North Texas Food Bank's service area.

     Commodities Supplemental Food Program In 2000, the North
     Texas Food Bank became the first Commodities Supplemental Food Program (also
     known locally as People and Nutrition, or PAN) distributor in Texas. The program
     provides surplus USDA commodities for low income Dallas County residents who
     meet certain requirements, such as being 60 years old or older, children under six
     not receiving assistance from WIC (Women, Infants and Children Program) or
     pregnant, breastfeeding or postpartum women not receiving assistance from WIC.
     Each month, 7,500 participants each receive an estimated 32 pounds of USDA
     commodities at 98 PAN distribution sites in Dallas County. PAN is a partnership of
     the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Texas Health and Human Services Commission,
     Catholic Charities of Dallas and the North Texas Food Bank.

     Community Kitchen The Community Kitchen began as a North Texas
     Food Bank pilot program in early 2000. The mission of the Kitchen is to offer
     Food Bank Member Agencies nutritious, fully prepared frozen meals to heat and
     serve to the hungry while providing culinary job skills training to disadvantaged
     individuals with an interest in a food service career. Construction of a new 3,000
     square foot kitchen at the Food Bank was completed in February 2002. The kitchen
     provides an average of 8,000 meals weekly in a variety of formats which are then
     distributed to 39 program sites. Up to 30 students, primarily from the Texas Second
     Chance Program in partnership with Dawson State Prison, receive food service
     training each year while helping to prepare meals.

     Food For Families Food For Families is a cooperative effort between the
     North Texas Food Bank and more than 30 Member Agencies. Pre-qualified clients
     of participating Agencies are issued a voucher for specific food distribution. Clients
     meet Agency volunteers at a specific parking lot at a pre-determined time. A drive-
     through line is organized and Agency volunteers give food directly to clients from
     Food Bank trucks. In fiscal year 2009, more than 707,737 pounds of food were
     distributed to more than 16,619 families and 69,085 individuals.

    Food 4 Kids Elementary school children on the free and reduced-price school
    meal program often face hunger when these meals are not available on weekends.
    The Food 4 Kids program helps to solve this problem by providing backpacks full of
    nonperishable, kid-friendly food for these chronically hungry children to take home
    on Friday afternoons. The program has grown exponentially from 200 participating
    elementary schools last year to 310 schools in fiscal year 2009. Approximately
    7,900 children in Dallas, Denton, Collin, Rockwall and Fannin counties received a
    backpack full of food each weekend during the school year.

    Hunger Link Prepared Foods The Dallas Hunger Link collects surplus
    prepared, perishable food from 25 donor hotels, restaurants, cafeterias and other
    food service kitchens. That food is then frozen in disposable aluminum steam table
    pans provided by the Food Bank. Specially trained Hunger Link drivers then pick
    up the food in refrigerated Hunger Link trucks and distribute it to on-site meal
    programs throughout Dallas. In fiscal year 2009, the Hunger Link program collected
    more than 524,000 pounds of food.

    Kids Cafe The North Texas Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program began in 1998 as a
    way to provide nutritious after-school meals to children who may not have enough
    to eat when they go home from school. The Food Bank currently operates 28 Kids
    Cafe sites with generous funding from several donors, including Capital One. More
    than 270,739 meals were served last year to children in Dallas, Collin and Grayson
    counties.

    Main Program The Main Program of the North Texas Food Bank gathers
    donations of both perishable and nonperishable food as well as nonfood items.
    These items are then distributed to North Texas area food pantries, soup kitchens,
    homeless shelters and other programs that serve people in need. In fiscal year 2009,
    the Food Bank’s Main Program distributed enough resources to Member Agency
    food pantries to serve 634,740 families. Area homeless shelters, day-care centers,
    soup kitchens and other facilities provided 5,215,929 on-site meals and snacks to the
    hungry in our community.

    Nutrition Education/Operation Frontline Nutrition education is
    a priority at the North Texas Food Bank. Since partnering with Share Our Strength
    in 1996 to provide Operation Frontline (OFL) cooking and nutrition classes, the Food
    Bank has educated thousands of families in North Texas. Through direct outreach to
    clients at Member Agencies, OFL promotes short- and long-term solutions to hunger
    by providing participants of all ages with the skills and resources they need to make
    healthy, economical food choices. Every year, culinary professionals, nutritionists
    and food enthusiasts volunteer their time to teach low-income participants the basics
    of healthy cooking, nutrition, food budgeting and food safety. In fiscal year 2009, 272
    people participated in 20 six-week classes, a 108 percent increase in the number of
    people served and a 43 percent increase in the number of classes offered since last
    year. Additionally, 12,038 people received nutrition education through workshops at
    Member Agencies and events in the community.

    Texas Second Chance              In 1997 the North Texas Food Bank formed a
    collaborative partnership with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Texas
    Second Chance allows selected prison confinees to volunteer at the Food Bank
    up to four days a week. As volunteer laborers, they receive job skills training in

     warehousing and food service. This training vastly improves participants’ ability
     to successfully reintegrate into the community. Last year participants in the Texas
     Second Chance program provided more than 15,730 hours of community service for
     the Food Bank.

     Serving U Serving U is a one-day teambuilding program hosted in our renovated
     warehouse. The program is designed to help key executive and departmental
     personnel sharpen their communication and teamwork skills while serving a larger
     purpose. In just one day, corporate teams learn how to work together effectively,
     set aside differences, plan common goals and build stronger bonds. At the same
     time, team members are helping to feed thousands of North Texans in need by
     volunteering together at the Food Bank. In fiscal year 2009, seven companies took
     part in Serving U, for a total of 656 participants. The following companies are Serving
     U alumni from the past two years: ALCOA, Brown-Forman, Capital One, Capital
     One Auto Finance, Capital One Commercial Banking, Communities Foundation of
     Texas, Covidien, CVS Caremark, Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau, The Dallas
     Morning News, EnCana Oil and Gas, One Technologies, PepsiCo, Pizza Inn, Plexent,
     Powerwave, RSW Creative, Sabre Holdings, Southwest Airlines, Travelocity,
     University Park United Methodist Church, Wal-Mart and YUM! Brands, Inc.

     The Volunteer Experience Volunteering at the North Texas Food Bank
     is truly a unique experience. With a variety of ways to serve – from packing and
     sorting food to helping with administrative tasks to teambuilding programs like
     Serving U – our volunteers enjoy a hands-on, engaging and effective community
     service experience that brings them back again and again. In fiscal year 2009, 17,004
     volunteers contributed 57,580 hours of service to the North Texas Food Bank. The
     Food Bank is grateful for the hard work and dedication of our many volunteers and
     community leaders who help make our work possible.

     Feeding Kids
     Laura Bechtol, a counselor at F.P. Caillet Elementary School in Dallas sees first-
     hand how devastating the effects of hunger
     can be for a child. Of the 723 students at Caillet
     Elementary, the vast majority are on the free or
     reduced-price school meal program.

     But thanks to the North Texas Food Bank’s
     Food 4 Kids backpack program, students
     can take home backpacks full of nutritious,
     kid-friendly food each weekend when they
     otherwise might not have anything to eat.
     Laura says the program has made a huge difference in the kids’ behavior and
     concentration in class.
     “If you’re hungry, your focus isn’t there,” she says. “If you don’t have your basic
     needs met, nothing else matters.”
     "Thank you for giving me the food and helping my family because some people
     don't give us things,” says one appreciative student. "My mom and dad are
     happy to see us eat healthy."

The North Texas Food Bank passionately
  pursues a hunger-free community.
