Thanks to numerous generous donations, the 2017 City of Fort Worth Employee & Neighborhood Food Drive was a huge success. Eighteen neighborhood organizations competed and collectively donated 673.80 pounds of food and $4,970 in cash to the Tarrant Area Food Bank. This equates to approximately 25,411 meals for those in need.

Overall grand prize winners:

First place: Monticello Neighborhood Association.

Second place: Tanglewood Neighborhood Association.

Third place: Tehama Ridge Homeowners Association.

Calculations for each neighborhood were based on the number of households in the organization’s boundaries, as obtained from 2010 Census data. Grand prize winners will be acknowledged at a future City Council meeting.

The City of Fort Worth and the Tarrant Area Food Bank appreciate the hard work and generosity of all neighborhoods that participated in the 2017 City of Fort Worth Employee & Neighborhood Food Drive.
