The Tarrant Area Food Bank is hosting a large-scale food distribution event every Friday through January 29, according to the city of Fort Worth.
This week’s pantry at Herman Clark Stadium, 5201 Ca Roberson Blvd., is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Tarrant Food Bank also has mobile pantries from Tuesday to Saturday in different locations and at different times, according to their distribution calendar. The food bank suggests checking their Facebook page for updates and special events to make sure the times haven’t changed during the vacation.
The North Texas Food Bank also recommends checking their website for updates on the locations of their mobile pantries.
Food is only delivered to people arriving by vehicle. In order to receive assistance, they will be asked to provide their name, income, and family size. However, no evidence or documents are required.
