Employees from local accounting firm Bland Garvey, P.C. helping the North Texas Food Bank meet it's goal of providing 65 million nutritious meals in fiscal year 2014. Bland Garvey employees packaged 12,600 meals and 1,974 Food 4 Kids Backpacks. 


The Food 4 Kids program provides backpacks full of nonperishable, kid-friendly food for them to take home on Friday afternoons.  The program has grown to 330 schools and approximately 11,000 chronically hungry children in Dallas, Denton, Collin, Rockwall and Fannin counties recieve backpacks full of food each weekend during the school year. 


This is the seventh year Bland Garvey has volunteered at NTFB.  The firm was looking for an employee team building exercise and found giving back to the community a strong unifier.  The program is popular with employees and the firm plans to continue to support the North Texas Food Bank.
