Empowering the Masses has partnered with the Dolphin Heights Community Garden

THE MISSION

Empowering the Masses has partnered with the Dolphin Heights Community Garden in an effort to transform the health and well-being of under-resourced communities in South East Dallas by providing fresh, healthy, affordable food options and by educating and empowering future generations to take better care of themselves, their environments, and their communities.

Located in a federally recognized food desert, the Dolphin Heights Community Garden has produced and provided to the families in the community and the seniors who live alone access to organic produce since its inception in March 2005, and no less than 10% of the produce has been donated the Empowering the Masses Food Pantry. This symbolizes Miss Hills dedication to individuals and organizations fighting to end food insecurity and injustice in South East Dallas.

 

In addition to providing fresh, healthy, affordable food options for its surrounding residents, the Dolphin Heights Community Garden strives to improve communities throughout the metroplex by providing hands-on educational experiences for youth and adults alike to promote healthy eating, improved food access, and environmental stewardship.

 

Under the guidance of Miss Anna Hill (The Mayor of Dolphin Heights), the Garden is operated and maintained by Miss Hill as well as volunteers from the Community, who actively engage in all garden activities. Miss Hills goal is for the Dolphin heights community garden to serve as a model of socially and environmentally driven servant leadership.

Golden Fork Award Winners Announced at 14th Annual Ceremony

Dallas, Oct. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) recognized top supporters and volunteers at its annual Golden Fork Awards ceremony. This year’s awards were presented to corporations, foundations and individuals that have made a significant impact on hunger-relief efforts in North Texas through their generosity and dedication.

“While we feel this gratitude every single day, we like to pause each year to formally recognize our most passionate hunger fighters and honor the many contributions that are critical in allowing the North Texas Food Bank to serve our neighbors experiencing hunger,” said President and CEO Trisha Cunningham. “As North Texans begin their recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, these supporters are helping us provide our community with food for today and hope for tomorrow.”

The following recipients were honored for their contributions at the ceremony on October 28:

Corporation of the Year: Baylor Scott & White Health

Baylor has been a long-time supporter of the North Texas Food Bank through the Baylor Scott & White Foundation and its multiple hospital locations in our service area. Since 2002, the organization has donated more than $340,000 to the Food Bank, translating to more than 1 million meals for our hungry neighbors. The company consistently makes hunger relief a priority through its annual Community Needs Assessment which directs its healthcare priorities each year. In the last year, the company supported the Food Bank in a truly life-saving way, when it provided access to the COVID-19 vaccine for Food Bank employees before most of our staff would have been eligible on their own.

Hunger Ambassador of the Year: Christy Coltrin and Brad Oldham

Christy and Brad are the owners of Brad Oldham International and they approach their craft in the same manner as they do their life – in collaboration. Using their different but complementary skill sets, Christy and Brad work together on each project to tell a story or create an experience. They have brought to life amazing, iconic works of art throughout Dallas Fort Worth, across the United States and the globe. Throughout their history with the food bank, Christy and Brad have been passionate supporters with their time, resources, and of course, their art. In addition to Lulu May’s Mark, which welcomes visitors to the NTFB Perot Family Campus, and Reflections, last holiday season, the pair created the Bright Side Bear, a limited-edition heartfelt bear sculpture that represented connection during the pandemic when many people were feeling isolated and alone. A portion of the proceeds from each sculpture was donated to the Food Bank.

Retail Partner of the Year: Walmart

Walmart has been a valued partner since 2001, donating more than $2.6M since our relationship began. This award recognizes Walmart’s dedication and outstanding support during this last year as we faced unprecedented challenges from the pandemic. The company’s retail donations increased in our last fiscal year by 48 percent from the year prior, donating more than 12.4M pounds of food. On a national level, since 2005, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have contributed more than 4.6 billion pounds in food donations and nearly $130 million in grants to support Feeding America. Locally, the company’s 2021 Fight Hunger. Spark Change. raised more than 1.5 million meals for the North Texas Food Bank.

Exemplary Professional Services of the Year: DLA Piper

DLA Piper is a leading global law firm with lawyers located in more than 40 countries around the world. For more than 30 years, DLA Piper has been active in hunger relief at the local, national and international levels, and it has been involved with the North Texas Food Bank since 2002. The firm regularly holds food drives, contributes funds and activates volunteers to help with food packing and distribution. DLA Piper has provided pro bono General Counsel support to the North Texas Food Bank, in addition to serving other food banks and Feeding America. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March 2020, the team at DLA Piper offered to meet with us regularly as we navigated unchartered waters to ensure we were making the safest decisions on all policies and practices related to employees. Over the years, the firm’s pro bono services are valued at over $640,000, but their support is invaluable to NTFB.

Tom Black Volunteer of the Year Award: Texas Woman’s University (TWU) Doswell College of Nursing

TWU graduates more new health care professionals than any other university in Texas, and at no point has this ever been more important than now. The TWU Nursing Program specifically is considered one of the best nursing programs in the nation and a leading provider of high-quality graduates. We witnessed this first-hand at the Food Bank over the last year after Dionne Magner, Assistance Clinical Professor at TWU’s Doswell College of Nursing, reached out to us about available service-learning opportunities. She went on to sign up 5 or 6 of her students to volunteer in the NTFB warehouse here at the Perot Family Campus 3 days per week between September and November 2020. Their caring and empathetic nature really came through during their time at the Food Bank.

Digital Partner of the Year: Alex Snodgrass

Alex is the Dallas-based creator and writer behind the popular lifestyle blog, The Defined Dish, as well as a New York Times bestselling author of a cookbook with the same name. Luckily for NTFB, her passion extends beyond the kitchen and into the community. At the onset of the pandemic, Alex hosted a fundraiser on her Instagram where she posted about the Food Bank’s emergency response efforts and encouraged her local followers to give and personally matched donations. The fundraiser raised more than $13K. She followed this campaign with another Instagram fundraiser for Feeding America to inspire all her followers across the country to donate – it raised $100K. Alex has also supported NTFB initiatives including the 2020 Letter Writing Campaign, where she signed over 40 of her cookbooks to give to our LWC advocates to motivate them for the upcoming campaign. Alex is also serving as our “celebrity chef” for our Harvest event in early 2022.

Campaign of the Decade: Communities Foundation of Texas and North Texas Giving Day

Communities Foundation of Texas is one of the largest community foundations in the nation and has been strengthening Texas communities since 1953. The Foundation’s North Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform. During NTX Giving Day, everyone can be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community. The event has raised over $460M for our community in its 13-year history. The North Texas Food Bank is honored to have been a part of NTX Giving Day since the beginning. Since 2009, NTFB has raised more than $9.9M in critical funds from the campaign, including more than $1.6M in the latest NTX Giving Day in September 2021. This allows the Food Bank to provide access to more than 5M meals.

Lifetime Achievement Award: Moody Foundation

For more than 75 years, the Moody Foundation has funded projects and programs that better communities across the state of Texas. It has awarded more than 4,000 grants to Texas-based nonprofits since its establishment in 1942 and pledged and awarded more than $1.8 billion in grants across the state. Since 2012, the Foundation has provided the North Texas Food Bank annual and capital support totaling $5.6 million. Additionally, the Foundation has invested in the Food Bank’s Feeding Network to build capacity and brought potential partners to the table to strengthen our network. Most recently, the Moody Foundation has supported Texans as we have navigated both the COVID-19 crisis and the devastating winter storms in February. The Foundation committed over $15.8M in COVID-19 relief funds to nonprofits across the state. With the COVID relief grant we received from the Moody Foundation, the Food Bank was able to provide 675,000 nutritious meals to families in North Texas. When the winter storms hit, the Foundation pledged more than $3M in grants to 45 organizations in Texas to help neighbors impacted by the storm and power outages.

2021 Jan Pruitt Legacy Award: NTFB Partner Agency Feeding Network

This award honors NTFB’s late CEO Jan Pruitt, who had a passion for helping her neighbors in need. The award was created in her memory five years ago.

This year, the award was given to the NTFB Partner Agency Feeding Network, a network of more than 200 partner agencies that provide access to food at hundreds of feeding locations across our diverse 13-county service area. Despite the many challenges the network faced in the last year, our partners kept their doors open to the communities they serve with patience, love, and care. With their partnership, we were able to distribute 125 million meals last year – the most ever in our history. NTFB is honored to recognize the network’s relentless dedication to helping their neighbors thrive. Trent Smith, the Director of Operations at one of NTFB’s partners, Christian Community Action and Chairman of the NTFB Partner Agency Council, accepted the award on behalf of the Feeding Network.

This past year, due to the increased need in our community, the North Texas Food Bank also honored several special recognition recipients as an extension of the traditional Golden Fork Awards. The honorees were: Brenda Bogart; Craftsman Floor Contractors; Evan Lee; Lighthouse Resource and Development Center; Mike Myers Foundation; Perot Museum of Nature and Science; Ruibal’s of Dallas; and The Mavericks Foundation.

Golden Fork Award Winners Announced at 14th Annual Ceremony

Dallas, Oct. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) recognized top supporters and volunteers at its annual Golden Fork Awards ceremony. This year’s awards were presented to corporations, foundations and individuals that have made a significant impact on hunger-relief efforts in North Texas through their generosity and dedication.

“While we feel this gratitude every single day, we like to pause each year to formally recognize our most passionate hunger fighters and honor the many contributions that are critical in allowing the North Texas Food Bank to serve our neighbors experiencing hunger,” said President and CEO Trisha Cunningham. “As North Texans begin their recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, these supporters are helping us provide our community with food for today and hope for tomorrow.”

The following recipients were honored for their contributions at the ceremony on October 28:

Corporation of the Year: Baylor Scott & White Health

Baylor has been a long-time supporter of the North Texas Food Bank through the Baylor Scott & White Foundation and its multiple hospital locations in our service area. Since 2002, the organization has donated more than $340,000 to the Food Bank, translating to more than 1 million meals for our hungry neighbors. The company consistently makes hunger relief a priority through its annual Community Needs Assessment which directs its healthcare priorities each year. In the last year, the company supported the Food Bank in a truly life-saving way, when it provided access to the COVID-19 vaccine for Food Bank employees before most of our staff would have been eligible on their own.

Hunger Ambassador of the Year: Christy Coltrin and Brad Oldham

Christy and Brad are the owners of Brad Oldham International and they approach their craft in the same manner as they do their life – in collaboration. Using their different but complementary skill sets, Christy and Brad work together on each project to tell a story or create an experience. They have brought to life amazing, iconic works of art throughout Dallas Fort Worth, across the United States and the globe. Throughout their history with the food bank, Christy and Brad have been passionate supporters with their time, resources, and of course, their art. In addition to Lulu May’s Mark, which welcomes visitors to the NTFB Perot Family Campus, and Reflections, last holiday season, the pair created the Bright Side Bear, a limited-edition heartfelt bear sculpture that represented connection during the pandemic when many people were feeling isolated and alone. A portion of the proceeds from each sculpture was donated to the Food Bank.

Retail Partner of the Year: Walmart

Walmart has been a valued partner since 2001, donating more than $2.6M since our relationship began. This award recognizes Walmart’s dedication and outstanding support during this last year as we faced unprecedented challenges from the pandemic. The company’s retail donations increased in our last fiscal year by 48 percent from the year prior, donating more than 12.4M pounds of food. On a national level, since 2005, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have contributed more than 4.6 billion pounds in food donations and nearly $130 million in grants to support Feeding America. Locally, the company’s 2021 Fight Hunger. Spark Change. raised more than 1.5 million meals for the North Texas Food Bank.

Exemplary Professional Services of the Year: DLA Piper

DLA Piper is a leading global law firm with lawyers located in more than 40 countries around the world. For more than 30 years, DLA Piper has been active in hunger relief at the local, national and international levels, and it has been involved with the North Texas Food Bank since 2002. The firm regularly holds food drives, contributes funds and activates volunteers to help with food packing and distribution. DLA Piper has provided pro bono General Counsel support to the North Texas Food Bank, in addition to serving other food banks and Feeding America. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March 2020, the team at DLA Piper offered to meet with us regularly as we navigated unchartered waters to ensure we were making the safest decisions on all policies and practices related to employees. Over the years, the firm’s pro bono services are valued at over $640,000, but their support is invaluable to NTFB.

Tom Black Volunteer of the Year Award: Texas Woman’s University (TWU) Doswell College of Nursing

TWU graduates more new health care professionals than any other university in Texas, and at no point has this ever been more important than now. The TWU Nursing Program specifically is considered one of the best nursing programs in the nation and a leading provider of high-quality graduates. We witnessed this first-hand at the Food Bank over the last year after Dionne Magner, Assistance Clinical Professor at TWU’s Doswell College of Nursing, reached out to us about available service-learning opportunities. She went on to sign up 5 or 6 of her students to volunteer in the NTFB warehouse here at the Perot Family Campus 3 days per week between September and November 2020. Their caring and empathetic nature really came through during their time at the Food Bank.

Digital Partner of the Year: Alex Snodgrass

Alex is the Dallas-based creator and writer behind the popular lifestyle blog, The Defined Dish, as well as a New York Times bestselling author of a cookbook with the same name. Luckily for NTFB, her passion extends beyond the kitchen and into the community. At the onset of the pandemic, Alex hosted a fundraiser on her Instagram where she posted about the Food Bank’s emergency response efforts and encouraged her local followers to give and personally matched donations. The fundraiser raised more than $13K. She followed this campaign with another Instagram fundraiser for Feeding America to inspire all her followers across the country to donate – it raised $100K. Alex has also supported NTFB initiatives including the 2020 Letter Writing Campaign, where she signed over 40 of her cookbooks to give to our LWC advocates to motivate them for the upcoming campaign. Alex is also serving as our “celebrity chef” for our Harvest event in early 2022.

Campaign of the Decade: Communities Foundation of Texas and North Texas Giving Day

Communities Foundation of Texas is one of the largest community foundations in the nation and has been strengthening Texas communities since 1953. The Foundation’s North Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform. During NTX Giving Day, everyone can be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community. The event has raised over $460M for our community in its 13-year history. The North Texas Food Bank is honored to have been a part of NTX Giving Day since the beginning. Since 2009, NTFB has raised more than $9.9M in critical funds from the campaign, including more than $1.6M in the latest NTX Giving Day in September 2021. This allows the Food Bank to provide access to more than 5M meals.

Lifetime Achievement Award: Moody Foundation

For more than 75 years, the Moody Foundation has funded projects and programs that better communities across the state of Texas. It has awarded more than 4,000 grants to Texas-based nonprofits since its establishment in 1942 and pledged and awarded more than $1.8 billion in grants across the state. Since 2012, the Foundation has provided the North Texas Food Bank annual and capital support totaling $5.6 million. Additionally, the Foundation has invested in the Food Bank’s Feeding Network to build capacity and brought potential partners to the table to strengthen our network. Most recently, the Moody Foundation has supported Texans as we have navigated both the COVID-19 crisis and the devastating winter storms in February. The Foundation committed over $15.8M in COVID-19 relief funds to nonprofits across the state. With the COVID relief grant we received from the Moody Foundation, the Food Bank was able to provide 675,000 nutritious meals to families in North Texas. When the winter storms hit, the Foundation pledged more than $3M in grants to 45 organizations in Texas to help neighbors impacted by the storm and power outages.

2021 Jan Pruitt Legacy Award: NTFB Partner Agency Feeding Network

This award honors NTFB’s late CEO Jan Pruitt, who had a passion for helping her neighbors in need. The award was created in her memory five years ago.

This year, the award was given to the NTFB Partner Agency Feeding Network, a network of more than 200 partner agencies that provide access to food at hundreds of feeding locations across our diverse 13-county service area. Despite the many challenges the network faced in the last year, our partners kept their doors open to the communities they serve with patience, love, and care. With their partnership, we were able to distribute 125 million meals last year – the most ever in our history. NTFB is honored to recognize the network’s relentless dedication to helping their neighbors thrive. Trent Smith, the Director of Operations at one of NTFB’s partners, Christian Community Action and Chairman of the NTFB Partner Agency Council, accepted the award on behalf of the Feeding Network.

This past year, due to the increased need in our community, the North Texas Food Bank also honored several special recognition recipients as an extension of the traditional Golden Fork Awards. The honorees were: Brenda Bogart; Craftsman Floor Contractors; Evan Lee; Lighthouse Resource and Development Center; Mike Myers Foundation; Perot Museum of Nature and Science; Ruibal’s of Dallas; and The Mavericks Foundation.

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a social benefit organization located in Plano, Texas. The organization distributes donated, purchased and prepared foods through a network of nearly 1,000 feeding programs and 262 Partner Agencies in 13 North Texas counties. The NTFB supports the nutritional needs of children, seniors, and families through education, advocacy and strategic partnerships.

History[edit]

The North Texas Food Bank was established in 1982 by Liz Minyard (prior owner of the Minyard's Food Stores chain), Kathryn Hall, Jo Curtis and Lorraine Griffin Kircher. Their goal was to address the critical issue of hunger in North Texas by securing donations of surplus unmarketable, but wholesome, foods and grocery products for distribution through a network of charitable organizations in 13 North Texas counties: Dallas, Denton, Collin, Fannin, Rockwall, Hunt, Grayson, Kaufman, Ellis, Navarro, Lamar, Delta and Hopkins. In the first year of operation, the Food Bank distributed 400,000 pounds of food.[1]

Members of the North Texas Food Bank's organizing committee became advocates with members of the Texas Legislature for the passage of the Good Faith Donor Act, which protects donors from liability of donated product. With the passage of this act in 1983, many potential donors began actively donating.[2]

The North Texas Food Bank is a certified member of Feeding America's Food Bank Network. Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger relief organization, solicits food and grocery products from national suppliers for distribution through more than 200 certified Food Banks nationally. Feeding America also provides Food Banks with operational standards, training, support and inspection, and educates the public and government officials about the nature and solutions to the problem of hunger in the U.S. Based on distribution North Texas Food Bank is ranked 8th nationally among Feeding America food banks.[3]

Since 1982, NTFB has distributed more than half a billion pounds of food.[4]

Close the Gap (2008-2011)[edit]

Ending in June 2011, Close the Gap was the organization's three-year strategic plan to narrow the food gap by providing access to 50 million meals annually.[5] By the end of their 2011 fiscal year (July 2010-June 2011), the organization provided access to 50.5 million meals; exceeding their goal.

ReThink Hunger (2011-2014)[edit]

Beginning in July 2011, NTFB began its three-year strategic plan, ReThink Hunger, to improve the services provided. The plan focused on three pillars:

  • Healthier – Providing more nutritious food, including fresh produce.
  • Smarter – Understanding hunger better through the development of The Hunger Center of North Texas, a collaborative research program that provides tools and information to fight hunger more efficiently.
  • Stronger – Building capacity and collaborating more efficiently by investing in programs, facilities and partnerships that offer the best opportunities to improve service and efficiency.

In Fiscal Year 2014, the final year of the Rethink Hunger campaign, NTFB provided access to 62 million nutritious meals through a network of 262 Partner Agencies and 1000 feeding programs.

Stop Hunger, Build Hope Capital Campaign (2015-2018)[edit]

In 2015, the North Texas Food Bank announced a 10-year plan to provide access to 92 million meals annually by 2025. The goal reflects the current need for food assistance in NTFB's 13-county service area and represents a nearly 50 percent increase in meals distributed today.

In February 2017, NTFB publicly launched the Stop Hunger Build Hope Capital Campaign to help fund a new Northern Distribution Center and other initiatives that will allow NTFB to reach the 92 million meal goal. In January 2018, the $55 million goal that would fund additional NTFB capacity, partner agency capacity and provide more insights about clients was achieved.

Operations[edit]

The North Texas Food Bank allocates all donations by using only 6% of all resources for fundraising and administrative costs which allows 94 cents of every dollar donated to reach the hungry.[6] The organization focuses on providing more nutritious food to the community it serves, becoming a thought leader on the subject of hunger in North Texas and expanding its reach in North Texas. Both donated and purchased product are stored in their main warehouse location in Plano, the Perot Family Campus, which they moved into in September 2018.

North Texas Food Bank trucks pickup food donations from various locations. After being received and sorted by Food Bank volunteers and employees the food is then distributed to agencies throughout North Texas.

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.

An estimated 31,000 individuals volunteer their time at NTFB each year.[4]

Mass Care Task Force[edit]

Hurricane Katrina brought over 30,000 evacuees to the North Texas area. Non-profit organizations in the North Texas area found that they were unable to meet the needs of those who migrated into the area. So in 2006, chief executive officers from the American Red Cross, the North Texas Food Bank, The Salvation Army and the Volunteer Center of North Texas formed the Mass Care Task Force; to prepare for disaster relief in the area. The task force is currently working on funding for the relief plan.[7]

In 2011, when Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast, the Mass Care Task Force officially activated for the first time to provide food, shelter, and assistance to refugees from the area.

Tom Black Volunteer of the Year Award: Texas Woman’s University (TWU) Doswell College of Nursing

TWU graduates more new health care professionals than any other university in Texas, and at no point has this ever been more important than now. The TWU Nursing Program specifically is considered one of the best nursing programs in the nation and a leading provider of high-quality graduates. We witnessed this first-hand at the Food Bank over the last year after Dionne Magner, Assistance Clinical Professor at TWU’s Doswell College of Nursing, reached out to us about available service-learning opportunities. She went on to sign up 5 or 6 of her students to volunteer in the NTFB warehouse here at the Perot Family Campus 3 days per week between September and November 2020.

2021 Jan Pruitt Legacy Award: NTFB Partner Agency Feeding Network

This award honors NTFB’s late CEO Jan Pruitt, who had a passion for helping her neighbors in need. The award was created in her memory five years ago.

This year, the award was given to the NTFB Partner Agency Feeding Network, a network of more than 200 partner agencies that provide access to food at hundreds of feeding locations across our diverse 13-county service area. Despite the many challenges the network faced in the last year, our partners kept their doors open to the communities they serve with patience, love, and care.

Liabilities to Assets Suntrust small business app Liabilities to Assets Ratio is determined by Total Liabilities divided by Total Assets (most recent 990).


Part of our goal in rating the financial performance of charities is to help donors assess the financial capacity and sustainability of a charity.

This ratio is an indicator of an organization’s solvency and or long term sustainability. Dividing a charity's total liabilities by its total assets yields this percentage.

Governance


Charity Navigator looks to confirm on the Form 990 that the organization has these governance practices in place.


Sources Include: IRS Form 990

Governance:
Independent Voting Board Members  . (More)
The presence of an independent governing body is strongly recommended by many industry professionals to allow for full deliberation and diversity of thinking on governance and other organizational matters. Our analysts check the Form 990 to determine if the independent Board members are a voting majority and also at least five in number. (Less)
No Material Diversion of Assets . (More)

A diversion of assets – any unauthorized conversion or use of the organization's assets other than for the organization's authorized purposes, including but not limited to embezzlement or theft – can seriously food bank volunteer dallas tx into question a charity's financial integrity. We check the charity's last two Forms 990 to see if the charity has reported any diversion of assets. If the charity does report a diversion, then we check to see if it complied with the Form 990 instructions by describing what happened and its corrective action. This metric will be assigned to one of the following categories:

  • Full Credit: There has been no diversion of assets within the last two years.

  • Partial Credit: There has been a diversion of assets within the last two years and the charity has used Schedule O on the Form 990 to explain: the nature of the diversion, the amount of money or property involved and the corrective action taken to address the matter. In this situation, we deduct 7 points from the charity's Accountability and Transparency score.
  • No Credit: There has been a diversion of assets within the last two years and the charity's explanation on Schedule O is either non-existent or not sufficient. In this case, we deduct 15 points from the charity's Accountability and Transparency score.
(Less)
Audited Financials Prepared by Independent Accountant . (More)

Audited financial statements provide important information about financial accountability and accuracy. They should be prepared by an independent accountant with oversight from an audit committee. (It is not necessary that the audit committee be a separate committee. Often at smaller charities, it falls within the responsibilities of the finance committee or food bank volunteer dallas tx executive committee.) The committee provides an important oversight layer between the management of the organization, which is responsible for the financial information reported, and the independent accountant, who reviews the financials and issues an opinion based on its findings. We check the charity's Form 990 reporting to see if it meets this criteria.

  • Full Credit: The charity's audited financials were prepared by an independent accountant with an audit oversight committee.

  • Partial Credit: The charity's audited financials were prepared by an independent accountant, but it did not have an audit oversight committee. In this case, we deduct 7 points from the charity's Accountability and Transparency score.
  • No Credit: The charity did not have its audited financials prepared by an independent accountant. In this case, we deduct 15 points from the charity's Accountability and Transparency score.
(Less)
Does Not Provide Loan(s) to or Receive Loan(s) From Related Parties . (More)
Making loans to related parties such as key officers, staff, or Board members, is not standard practice in the sector as it may divert the charity's funds away from its charitable mission and can lead to real and perceived conflict-of-interest problems. This practice is discouraged by sector trade groups which point to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act when they call for charities to refrain from making loans to directors and executives. And the IRS is concerned enough with the practice that it requires charities to disclose on their Form 990 any loans to or from current and former officers, directors, trustees, key employees, and other "disqualified persons." Furthermore, some state laws go so far as to prohibit loans to board members and officers. And although employees and trustees are permitted to make loans to charities, this practice can also result in real and/or perceived conflict of interest problems for the charity. Furthermore, it is problematic because it is an indicator that the organization is not financially secure.  (Less)
Documents Board Meeting Minutes . (More)
An official record of the events that take place during a board meeting ensures that a contemporaneous document exists for future reference. Charities are not required to make their Board meeting minutes available to the public. As such, we are not able to review and critique their minutes. For this performance metric, we are checking to see if the charity reports on its Form 990 that it does keep those minutes. In the future, we will also track and rate whether or not a charity keeps minutes for its committee meetings.  (Less)
Distributes 990 to Board Before Filing . (More)
Providing copies of the Form to the governing body in advance of filing is considered a best practice, as it allows for thorough review by the individuals charged with overseeing the organization. The Form 990 asks the charity to disclose whether or not it has followed this best practice. If the charity has not distributed its Form 990 to the board before filing, then we deduct 4 points from its Accountability and Transparency score.  (Less)
Compensates Board . (More)
The IRS requires that any compensation paid to members of the charity's governing body be listed on the Form 990. Furthermore, all members of the governing body need to be listed whether or not they are compensated. It is not unusual for some members of the board to have compensation listed. The executive director of the organization frequently has a seat on the board, for instance, and is compensated for being a full time staff member. However, it is rare for a charity to compensate individuals only for serving on its Board of Directors. Although this sort of board compensation is not illegal, it is not considered a best practice. food bank volunteer dallas tx Navigator looks to confirm on the Form 990, or for some metrics on the charity's website, that the organization has these policies in place.


Sources Include: IRS Form 990 and organization's website

Policies:
Conflict of Interest  . (More)
Such a policy protects the organization, and by extension those it serves, when it is considering entering into a transaction that may benefit the private interest of an officer or director of the organization. Charities are not required to share their conflict of interest policies with the public. Although we can not evaluate the substance of its policy, we can tell you if the charity has one in place based on the information it reports on its Form 990. If the charity does not have a Conflict of Interest policy, then we deduct 4 points from its Accountability and Transparency score. (Less)
Whistleblower . (More)
This policy outlines procedures for handling employee complaints, as well as a confidential way for employees to report any financial mismanagement. Here we are reporting on the existence of a policy as reported by the charity on its Form 990. (Less)
Records Retention and Destruction . (More)
Such a policy establishes guidelines for handling, backing up, archiving and destruction of documents. These guidelines foster good record keeping procedures that promotes data integrity. Here we are reporting on the existence of a policy as reported by the charity on its Form 990. If the charity does not have a Records Retention and Destruction Policy, then we deduct 4 points from its Accountability and Transparency score. (Less)
CEO Compensation Process . (More)
This process indicates that the organization has a documented policy that it follows year after year. The policy should indicate that an objective and independent review process of the CEO's compensation has been conducted which includes benchmarking against comparable organizations. We check to be sure that the charity has reported on its Form 990 its process for determining its CEO pay. (Less)
Donor Privacy . (More)

Donors have expressed extreme concern about the use of their personal information by charities and the desire to have this information kept confidential. The exchanging and sale of lists for telemarketing and the mass distribution of "junk mail," among other things, can be minimized if the charity assures the privacy of its donors. Privacy policies are assigned to one of the following categories:

  • Yes: This charity has a written donor privacy policy published on its website, which states unambiguously that (1) it will not share or sell a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations or (2) it will only share or sell personal information once the donor has given the charity specific permission to do so.

  • Opt-out: The charity has a written privacy policy published on its website which enables donors to tell the charity to remove their names and contact information from lists the charity shares or sells. How a donor can have themselves removed from a list differs from one charity to the next, but any and all opt-out policies require donors to take specific action to protect their privacy.
  • No: This charity either does not have a written donor privacy food bank volunteer dallas tx in place to protect their contributors' personal information, or the existing policy does not meet our criteria.

The privacy policy must be specific to donor information. A general website policy which references "visitor" or "user" personal information will not suffice. A policy that refers to donor information collected on the website is also not sufficient as the policy must be comprehensive and applicable to both online and offline donors. The existence of a privacy policy of any type does not prohibit the charity itself from contacting the donor for informational, educational, or solicitation purposes.

(Less)

Transparency


Charity Navigator looks to confirm on the Form 990, or for some metrics on the charity's website, that the organization makes this information easily accessible.


Sources Include: IRS Form 990 and organization's website

Transparency:
CEO Salary Listed on 990 . (More)
Charities are required to list their CEO's name and compensation on the Form 990. Our analysts check to be sure that the charities complied with the Form 990 instructions and included this information in their filing. (Less)
Board of Directors Listed on Website . (More)
Our analysts check to see if the charity lists Board members on its website. Publishing this information enables donors and other stakeholders to ascertain the make up of the charity's governing body. This enables stakeholders to report concerns to the Board. Charity Navigator does not cross-check the Board members listed on the website with that reported on the Form 990, because the latter often isn't available until more than a year after the charity's fiscal year ends. In that time, the charity's Board members may have changed, and the charity typically reflects those more recent changes on the website. (Less)
Key Staff Listed on Website . (More)
It is important for donors and other stakeholders to know who runs the organization day-to-day. Charity Navigator does not cross-check the leadership listed on the website with that reported on the Form 990 because the latter often isn't available until more than a year after the charity's fiscal year ends. In that time, the charity's leadership may have changed and the charity typically reflects those more recent changes on the website. In other words, since the Form 990 isn't especially timely, it can not be used to verify the leadership information published on the charity's site. (Less)
Audited Financial Statements on Website . (More)
We check the charity's website to see if it has published its audited financial statements for the fiscal year represented by the most recently filed IRS Form 990. It is important for donors to have easy access to this financial report to help determine if the organization is managing its financial resources well. We currently rate charities on whether or not they publish their audit on their website.  (Less)
Form 990 Available on Website . (More)
We check the charity's website to see if it has published its most recently filed IRS Form 990 (a direct link to the charity's 990 on an external site is sufficient). It is important for donors to have easy access to this financial report to help determine if the organization is managing its financial resources well. (Less)

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a social benefit organization located in Plano, Texas. The organization distributes donated, purchased and prepared foods through a network of nearly 1,000 feeding programs and 262 Partner Agencies in 13 North Texas counties. The NTFB supports the nutritional needs of children, seniors, and families through education, advocacy and strategic partnerships.

History[edit]

The North Texas Food Bank was established in 1982 by Liz Minyard (prior owner of the Minyard's Food Stores chain), Kathryn Hall, Jo Curtis and Lorraine Griffin Kircher. Their goal was to address the critical issue of hunger in North Texas by securing donations of surplus unmarketable, but wholesome, foods and grocery products for distribution through a network of charitable organizations in 13 North Texas counties: Dallas, Denton, Collin, Fannin, Rockwall, Hunt, Grayson, Kaufman, Ellis, Navarro, Lamar, Delta and Hopkins. In the first year of operation, the Food Bank distributed 400,000 pounds of food.[1]

Members of the North Texas Food Bank's organizing committee became advocates with members of the Texas Legislature for the passage of the Good Faith Donor Act, which protects donors from liability of donated product. With the passage of this act in 1983, many potential donors began actively donating.[2]

The North Texas Food Bank is a certified member of Feeding America's Food Bank Network. Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger relief organization, solicits food and grocery products from national suppliers for distribution through more than 200 certified Food Banks nationally. Feeding America also provides Food Banks with operational standards, training, support and inspection, and educates the public and government officials about the nature and solutions to the problem of hunger in the U.S. Based on distribution North Texas Food Bank is ranked 8th nationally among Feeding America food banks.[3]

Since 1982, NTFB has distributed more than half a billion pounds of food.[4]

Close the Gap (2008-2011)[edit]

Ending in June 2011, Close the Gap was the organization's three-year strategic plan to narrow the food gap by providing access to 50 million meals annually.[5] By the end of their 2011 fiscal year (July 2010-June 2011), the organization provided access to 50.5 million meals; exceeding their goal.

ReThink Hunger (2011-2014)[edit]

Beginning in July 2011, NTFB began its three-year strategic plan, ReThink Hunger, to improve the services provided. The plan focused on three pillars:

  • Healthier – Providing more nutritious food, including fresh produce.
  • Smarter – Understanding hunger better through the development of The Hunger Center of North Texas, a collaborative research program that provides tools and information to fight hunger more efficiently.
  • Stronger – Building capacity and collaborating more efficiently by investing in programs, facilities and partnerships that offer the best opportunities to improve service and efficiency.

In Fiscal Year 2014, the final year of the Rethink Hunger campaign, NTFB provided access to 62 million nutritious meals through a network of 262 Partner Agencies and 1000 feeding programs.

Stop Hunger, Build Hope Capital Campaign (2015-2018)[edit]

In 2015, the North Texas Food Bank announced a 10-year plan to provide access to 92 million meals annually by 2025. The goal reflects the current need for food assistance in NTFB's 13-county service area and represents a nearly 50 percent increase in meals distributed today.

In February 2017, NTFB publicly launched the Stop Hunger Build Hope Capital Campaign to help fund a new Northern Distribution Center and other initiatives that will allow NTFB to reach the 92 million meal goal. In January 2018, the $55 million goal that would fund additional NTFB capacity, partner agency capacity and provide more insights about clients was achieved.

Operations[edit]

The North Texas Food Bank allocates all donations by using only 6% of all resources for fundraising and administrative costs which allows 94 cents of every dollar donated to reach the hungry.[6] The organization focuses on providing more nutritious food to the community it serves, becoming a thought leader on the subject of hunger in North Texas and expanding its reach in North Texas. Both donated and purchased product are stored in their main warehouse location in Plano, the Perot Family Campus, which they moved into in September 2018.

North Texas Food Bank trucks pickup food donations from various locations. After being received and sorted by Food Bank volunteers and employees the food is then distributed to agencies throughout North Texas.

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.

An estimated 31,000 individuals volunteer their time at NTFB each year.[4]

Mass Care Task Force[edit]

Hurricane Katrina brought over 30,000 evacuees to the North Texas area. Non-profit organizations in the North Texas area found that they were unable to meet the needs of those who migrated into the area. So in 2006, chief executive officers from the American Red Cross, the North Texas Food Bank, The Salvation Army and the Volunteer Center of North Texas formed the Mass Care Task Force; to prepare for disaster relief in the area. The task force is currently working on funding for the relief plan.[7]

In 2011, when Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast, the Mass Care Task Force officially activated for the first time to provide food, shelter, and assistance to refugees from the area.
