North Texas Food Bank to distribute food at Royse City High School to help feed hungry during COVID-19

ROYSE CITY, TX – Dec. 22, 2020 – First United Methodist Church Rockwall, First United Methodist Church of Royse City, and First United Methodist Church of Heath – in partnership with the North Texas Food Bank – will be distributing kitted food boxes through a low-touch distribution model from 10 a.m. to noon Monday, December 28. Distribution will be on a first-come, first-serve basis at Royse City High School, 700 S. FM 2642 in Royse City. To receive food, visitors must be in a vehicle. No proof of identification is necessary.

NTFB staff will determine if the distribution needs to extend past end time.


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. NTFB is a member of Feeding America, a national hunger-relief organization.
