Become a NTFB Partner Agency
As part of our 10-year plan to meet the current need for food assistance in our community, Partner Agencies will be chosen through a strategic selection process that includes the agency's capacity to distribute food and the food assistance needs in the agency's geographic area. Organizations should submit a pre-application to become a NTFB Partner Agency if your organization meets this basic list of requirements:
1. Serves clients in one of the following counties: Collin, Rockwall, Denton, Hunt, Ellis, Lamar, Grayson, Fannin, Navarro, Kaufman, Hopkins, Delta or Dallas
2. Holds current 501(c)3 status, must be serving clients for at least 6 months, self-supporting (have food sources other than NTFB and be able to provide own funds and staff), no fee requirements for clients, and must be serving an identified unmet need in your community.
3. Other requirements may be identified at the time of your application completion.

Become a Community Distribution Partner
NTFB partners with two local organizations who serve as NTFB Hubs: Crossroads Community Services and Sharing Life Community Outreach. Our Hubs are certified to redistribute NTFB food to smaller organizations, known as Community Distribution Partners, so that they can in turn distribute it their clients/residents. This unique model allows smaller organizations to provide high-quality food assistance at the lowest possible cost, while helping to fulfill the need for food assistance in high-need communities.
If your organization serves a smaller population or doesn’t have proper storage, then you should consider partnering with one of our Hubs.
