“We are proud to work with Populus Financial Group toward our shared goals of addressing the root causes of hunger.” - Trisha Cunningham, NTFB CEO
From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas has led the nation with the highest projected number of people who will experience food insecurity in the United States. In a report from Feeding America, more than 4.8 million Texas residents, including 1.7 million children, will not have consistent access to meals.
The NTFB team works tirelessly with 200+ agency partners to increase access to nutritious foods for these individuals through their mobile food pantry and food bank locations across the North Texas area. Due to the unprecedented health and economic circumstances caused by COVID-19, its is estimated that 42 million people may experience food insecurity in 2021.
In response, ACE Cash Express (ACE), a Populus Financial Group brand, recently raised $5,475 for the North Texas Food Bank that could provide up to 16,425 nutritious meals.
