Rodeo Goat Denton fundraiser for the Denton Community Food Center (Food Pantry) Wed, September 27, 2023 05:30 PM - 08:00 PMCDT 3258 S Interstate 35, Denton, TX 76210, USA

Rodeo Goat is coming to Denton !!! They have TEAMED UP with the Denton Community Food Center (DCFC) to raise funds for Hunger Insecure families in the Denton area. Your minimum donation of $25 per person will include all food and non-alcoholic beverages in addition two tickets for beer, wine and cocktails. The restaurant will NOT be open to the public during this special evening fundraising event. Help support the DCFC mission to provide healthy nutritious food for families struggling with food insecurity so that children can be alert and learn in school and adults can be active contributors to our local economy and business community.

Last year DCFC assisted 3352 unique households representing 12,631 individuals struggling to put food on the table with our high inflation and skyrocketing grocery costs. The Food Center distributed over 1.2 million pounds of food, enough to make over 1 million meals in our community. The need is great today. Come have fun, eat and preview what the Rodeo Goat Denton has to offer. A great partnership. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Denton Community Food Center and our Mission to help feed our less fortunate local citizens. You will be glad you contributed and made a difference. And if you can't make it out Wednesday all donations are appreciated. We hope to see you on Wednesday September 27, 2023 between 5:30-8:00 pm. Rodeo Goat is where the former Catahoula's Louisiana Kitchen was located at Wind River & I-35E South.

Here is where you can buy the tickets.



The Food Center has finished the new 4500 sq. ft. expansion which will give more room for food and distribution tools as the number of families needing food increases. Watch the embed video of the ribbon cutting for more information.

The daughter, Terri Patton, of Dick and Verna Parsons made a wonderful donation in remembrance of all the years her parents volunteered at the Denton community Food Center. Dick was especially helpful to me with I first started volunteering at DCFC. I miss his kind wisdom and knowledge of the food pantry processes.
