Oh what a night! Many supporters of the Stop Hunger Build Hope Capital Campaign gathered at the beautiful Perot Family offices in Dallas to celebrate the closing of this historic campaign. Thanks to the efforts of campaign Co-Chairs John and Pam Beckert, a dedicated capital campaign committee and more than 500 donors, more than $55 million was raised for hunger relief in North Texas.
The funds raised from Stop Hunger Build Hope will be used to create a volunteer and distribution center- the Perot Family Campus- in Plano, TX and will also be invested into the Food Bank’s feeding network.
Though our new facility will be in Plano, the Food Bank also has our feet firmly planted in Dallas thanks to the Moody Foundation. Their $5 million gift to Stop Hunger Build Hope will allow for the renovation of NTFB's Dallas Farmers Market building, to be named in the Moody Foundation’s honor!
With a goal of raising $55 million, Stop Hunger Build Hope is the largest capital campaign for a social service organization in North Texas History.
Thank you to all of our supporters for agreeing that hunger is unacceptable, and for laying the foundation for the Food Bank of the future.
The vision of the Food Bank is to create a hunger-free, healthy North Texas. We will achieve this by ensuring that the agencies that are our partners have the resources they need to put healthy food on the table for our neighbors in need.
