Charity Event:

Supporting North Texas Food Bank
February 11, 2019  - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

DFW BTA decided to partner with Feeding America because hunger is an issue that faces so many Americans, many in our backyards.  Specifically here in Texas, Feeding America has a food bank in each key market that we have a BTA Chapter.  This is a key component for us as we wanted the charity to be something that can not only have an impact in our DFW community but ALL of our communities throughout Texas.  Our afternoon of community engagement will be spent shopping and then donating the items to the North Texas Food Bank, the Feeding America partner here in DFW.  The second component to this engagement is for each stay at the Omni Frisco for the TED conference, a donation that will donate a meal to a family in need thru their Say Goodnight to Hunger program which is in partnership with Feeding America.
