DI Staff Helps Feed the Hungry in Texas

dyncorp-intl-tafbMembers of our Fort Worth Alliance office reached out to the local community in December to participate in the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) 2016 holiday food drive and gift basket auction.

Their efforts yielded the collection of 286 pounds of food and $385 to support men, women, and children in need in Tarrant and 12 neighboring counties west of Dallas-Fort Worth. Community support of this kind exemplifies DI’s values: We Serve, We Care, We Empower, We Perform, We Do the Right Thing.

Several Fort Worth-area DI employees spent a three-hour shift volunteering at TAFB in addition to participating in their office food drive. While at TAFB they helped collect, organize, and distribute 5,970 pounds of food which was later used to provide close to 5000 meals to community members in need.

The Tarrant Area Food Bank provides food to 300 partner charities. They are the primary source of donated food for hunger-relief charities and feeding programs in 13 North Texas counties. Partner Agencies including soup kitchens, after-school programs, senior centers and other social service centers combine to serve more than 460,000 nutritious meals each week.
