Review for North Texas Food Bank, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've volunteered for the NTFB several times, and I am always impressed by the way that they easily incorporate groups of all sizes...and with the fun I've had. Even with that familiarity, I still found that our recent corporate teambuilding event at the NTFB exceeded my expectations. We worked really, really hard and actually learned some things about ourselves and the group at the same time. Other teambuiling events I've been to have been nothing but self-help mumbo jumbo or an excuse to sit around and have beers. This was a good use of our time, and fun to boot.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the reports on the news about all the people who need food right now, and knowing I'm doing something to help them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it bigger! And maybe help them do more advertising that focuses on the kids and seniors and organizations they serve, not Jan. But I like the "Hungry Today" effort - I think they're moving that direction.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the ease with which I could bring my church volunteers in for a fun, meaningful event where we were all together, and my recent corporate teambuilding there.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, smart, and aware of are time and goals even as they were passionately committed to the best for the Food Bank.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make 40 million meals!

Ways to make it better...

our corporate facilitator had maybe been a bit more assertive. But we are a pretty dang tough group, and the reviews were 100% positive when we were at lunch later.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

cutbacks in corporate and personal donations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am a huge, huge fan of the NTFB. I think more people should know how they're teaching people on food stamps to cook healthfully and to stretch their dollars, and all of the other clever things the Food Bank does to fight hunger.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I have sorted donated food in the past, and this time we boxed food for the elderly.
