Hundreds Line Up for Tarrant Area Food Bank Food Distribution; Here's the Schedule

Four food distribution events will take place in Fort Worth

NBCUniversal, Inc.

The Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) will be hosting four food distribution events to assist anyone who needs food from Thursday, Feb. 18 to Monday, Feb. 22.

Texas Sky Ranger showed hundreds in line at Herman Clark Stadium Friday.

The events were put in place to provide food assistance to those lacking resources due to the record-breaking temperatures, power outages, and lack of food at local grocery stores.

TAFB encourages anyone needing food assistance to attend the events listed below, all of which are in Fort Worth.

  • Thursday, Feb. 18, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. an Emergency Food Box Distribution will be the first event, at TAFB's Distribution Center located at 2600 Cullen Street.
  • Friday, Feb. 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. TAFB's Weekly Mega Mobile Market will be at Herman Clark Stadium located at 5201 CA Roberson Boulevard.
  • Saturday, Feb. 20, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. will be a special distribution event also located at Herman Clark Stadium.
  • Monday, Feb. 22, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. will be another special distribution event located at Herman Clark Stadium.

TAFB staff will fully run the event located at its distribution center and will not need volunteers.

Hundreds of cars were lined up outside of the Tarrant Area Food Bank’s distribution center on Thursday waiting for emergency food boxes provided by the food bank.

Members of the staff will also be providing SNAP assistance and answering questions about the SNAP application process. Individuals will also be able to receive help with completing and submitting the SNAP application if needed.

Gary Huddleston, a consultant specializing in the Texas grocery industry, joins NBC 5 to give some insight into what grocery providers are doing to restock their shelves in the wake of historic winter storms.

TAFB is asking for volunteers for distribution events taking place at the Herman Clark Stadium. Volunteers will be tasked with registration, traffic control and food distribution.
