Morrow Renewables donates $1 million to North Texas Food

DALLAS, Nov. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) announced today that Morrow Renewables has provided a $1 million donation to help the organization meet unprecedented demand to cover for food caused by inflation rates not observed for 40 years. The funds will enable the North Texas Food Bank to provide three million meals to the hungry across North Texas.

“New to the North Dallas area, Morrow Renewables is committed to being a positive force in the communities where our employees and customers work and live, and supporting the North Texas Food Bank with funds and volunteers is a natural progress for our company. said Luke Morrow, President of Morrow Renewables. “Before we moved to North Dallas from Midland, we partnered with the West Texas Food Bank to ensure our community had access to nutritious food. We firmly believe that being an active part of the community is important to our company and enabling our employees to live the company values ​​of helping the less fortunate and serving the community through corporate citizenship.”

Morrow Renewables quickly sought out and supported the North Texas Food Bank with a generous donation when they arrived in McKinney from Midland in June 2021. Following the financial support, the company brought about 40 employees to the NTFB’s Perot Family Campus to volunteer at the distribution center with sorting, packaging and preparing nutritious foods that are distributed to the food bank’s nutritional network. In their first year in North Texas, the Morrow family and Morrow Renewables provided more than 3.9 million nutritious meals through their support of the NTFB.

“We are very grateful for the support from companies like Morrow Renewables and the Morrow family. Our mission is to close North Texas’ hunger gap and provide a hunger-free future for children, adults and seniors,” said Trisha Cunningham, President and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank. “Corporate partners are a critical component of our efforts and we could not meet the growing demand for our services without their trust, collaboration and generosity. Through their gift, Morrow Renewables has shown a shared commitment and passion to provide food and hope to our starving neighbors.”

Funds will be used to support the purchase and distribution of groceries through the North Texas Food Bank’s various programs. To get involved by donating, volunteering, or hosting a canning drive, please visit ntfb.org.
