Help 'DRIVE' Away Hunger
Thank you for supporting this year's campaign! Your tolls provided 80,000 meals to those in need.
The developers & operators of the LBJ/NTE/NTE 35W TEXpress Lanes partnered with the North Texas Food Bank & Tarrant Area Food Bank to help ‘DRIVE’ away hunger this holiday season.
The 6th annual TEXpress Lanes Food ‘DRIVE’ helped support the more than 800,000 North Texans experiencing food insecurity, including 1 in 5 children.
On Saturday, November 20, 2021 – we were able to donate proceeds from each toll transaction up to $20,000 directly to NTFB & TAFB ($10,000 to each food bank). Your support and participation will have helped NTFB & TAFB provide more than 80,000 meals to hungry North Texans in need!
Thank you to all who took the pledge to DRIVE away hunger.

About Tarrant Area Food Bank
A central clearinghouse for donated food and groceries, Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) receives fresh, frozen and nonperishable food donated by the food industry and the community. Dedicated volunteers help sort, inspect and repackage the food, which is then distributed to our network of 270 Partner Agencies serving hungry children, families and seniors in North Texas. The people who generously donate their time, funds and skills to TAFB help make the services we provide to the community possible. For more information, visit www.tafb.org
About North Texas Food Bank
The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit hunger-relief organization operating a state-of-the-art volunteer and distribution center in Plano— the Perot Family Campus. Last year, the Food Bank worked hard in partnership with member agencies from our Feeding Network to provide access to almost 77 million nutritious meals across a diverse 13-county service area— this means more than 200,000 meals per day for hungry children, seniors and families. But the need for hunger relief in North Texas is complex and in order to meet the need the NTFB is working to increase our food distribution efforts. Our goal is to provide access to 92 million nutritious meals annually by 2025. For more information, visit www.ntfb.org
