Dallas, Nov. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) announced today that Morrow Renewables provided a $1 million donation to help the organization meet the unprecedented demand for food caused by inflation rates not seen in 40 years. The funds will enable the North Texas Food Bank to provide three million meals to those facing hunger across North Texas.
“Being new to the North Dallas area, Morrow Renewables is committed to being a positive driving force in the communities where our employees and customers work and live, and supporting the North Texas Food Bank with funds and volunteers is a natural progression for our company,” said Luke Morrow, President of Morrow Renewables. “Before moving to North Dallas from Midland, we partnered with the West Texas Food Bank to help ensure that our community had access to nutritious food. We firmly believe that it is important for our business to be an active part of the community and allow our employees to live the company’s values of helping those less fortunate and serving the community through corporate citizenship.”
Morrow Renewables was quick to seek out and support the North Texas Food Bank with a generous donation when they arrived in McKinney from Midland in June of 2021. It followed up the financial support by bringing about 40 employees to the NTFB’s Perot Family Campus to volunteer in the distribution center with sorting, packing and preparing nutritious food to be distributed to the Food Bank’s feeding network. In their first year in North Texas, the Morrow Family and Morrow Renewables provided more than 3.9 million nutritious meals through their support of the NTFB.
“We are so appreciative of the support of companies like Morrow Renewables and the Morrow family. Our mission is to bridge the hunger gap in North Texas and provide children, adults and seniors a hunger-free future,” said Trisha Cunningham, President and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank. “Corporate partners are a critical component of our efforts and we could not meet the growing demand for our services without their trust, collaboration and generosity. Through their gift, Morrow Renewables has shown a shared dedication and passion in providing nourishment and hope for our neighbors experiencing hunger.”
The funds will be used to support the purchase and distribution of food through the various North Texas Food Bank programs. To get involved by donating, volunteering or hosting a canned food drive, please visit ntfb.org.
