Denton Community Food Center (DCFC)


Cash Donations

Cash Donations are the most versatile as we are able to buy the food items we need.  We purchase 70% of the food distributed via cash donations from individuals; social and business organizations or clubs; churches and the business community.


As much as possible we buy food via the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) where we are able to multiply donated dollars 6 to 7 times ($10 donation can purchase $60 - $70 worth of food). We limit purchases on the retail market to only needed items not currently available from the TAFB.
