About Texas Food Bank Network The Texas Food Bank Network provides a unified voice among food banks in support of our common mission to end hunger in Texas. Our network includes twenty regional food banks – one in every major city. TFBN member food banks distributed nearly 300 million pounds of food in 2011, nourishing over three million Texans through a statewide network of 3,900 soup kitchens, food pantries and local agencies. This food was sourced from generous individuals, corporate partners, farmers, benevolent groups and taxpayer-funded programs at the local, state and federal levels. Just as our food banks play a regional role in collecting and distributing food sources too large for any one food pantry, TFBN plays a statewide, coordinating role in areas too large for any one food bank. These include disaster relief, public policy advocacy, and partnerships with statewide entities. TFBN also helps our food banks build the capacity to end hunger by managing statewide food sourcing and purchasing programs, offering expert technical assistance and training, and spreading food bank innovations and best practices statewide.
