Recall Notices

The FDA regularly posts recall notices to its website. Our Inventory department monitors these and distributes the information when it applies to a product we may have received. Check this list frequently for any recalled items.


Civil Rights Training

Each calendar year agency directors are required to sign and submit a Civil Rights Training Agreement. This allows agencies to conduct their annual Civil Rights training when it's most convenient for them. We will ask to see your training logs during the CBR.

Partner Agencies do not "buy" food from the NTFB

When discussing your partnership with the North Texas Food Bank to the public through your newsletters, appeal letters, grants, websites or media interviews please do not make any reference to "buying" food from the Food Bank. It generates an inaccurate impression and could jeopardize the ability of individuals and businesses to receive tax deductions for their product donations. Click here to learn more.
