“The Dallas Cowboys’ steadfast dedication to nourishing the community knows no bounds,” said Trisha Cunningham, president and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank. “For two decades, they’ve championed the cause, ensuring children, adults, and seniors have nutritious food to thrive by providing nearly 16 million meals. Their unwavering support is a beacon of hope when more children than ever face hunger. We are so grateful for the generous and critical support the Cowboys provide, bringing us closer to our hunger-free, healthy North Texas goal.”

All Taste of the Cowboys proceeds will benefit North Texas Bank’s Nourish the Future programs that target child hunger. According to NTFB, 287,000 children in North Texas do not know where their next meal is coming from.

“For two decades, the Dallas Cowboys organization has been a steadfast advocate for the mission of the North Texas Food Bank, dedicated to combating childhood hunger,” remarked Charlotte Jones, Cowboys executive vice president and chief brand officer. “Through our partnership, we aim to ensure children receive nourishing meals vital for their growth and success, both academically and personally. The Annual Taste of the Cowboys event, a lively celebration, provided 1.5 million meals to hungry children last year. We invite you to support the North Texas Food Bank on June 7 at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco.”

The event is sponsored by Ashley, KPMH, Tom Thumb/Albertson’s Foundation, Arcosa, Pollock, Ashford, Akin Gump, Alphagraphics, HungerMitao, Nihao, Sinhambre and Nakayoshi. Tables and individual tickets can be purchased at
