We are proud and excited to announce the latest refresh of our website

You may have noticed some "changes" to our website? We are excited to finally release our site refresh bringing a modern and simpler experience. You will find contextual information in fewer "clicks" making it easier/faster to find latest news, events, and updates surrounding the Denton Community Food Center (DCFC), and most importantly how to get help if you need it.


2020 has been a challenging year for us all, but DCFC's purpose of meeting those challenges has not changed. If you and your family are in need of help (or want to help those in need) we hope our refreshed site helps you more quickly and easily understand your options. We may have a new look, but we're the same place. Thank you for visiting.
