Trisha Cunningham is President and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB), a $200 million nonprofit focused on eradicating hunger in a diverse 13-county service area. It is estimated that more than 960,000 in this area do not know where they will find their next healthy meal. Through direct and feeding partner programs, Cunningham and the NTFB team of 180 employees and thousands of volunteers provided access to 97 million meals in their most current fiscal year. This was 20 million more than their prior year and it exceeded their 2025 goal of 92 million meals five years ahead of schedule.

Prior to North Texas Food Bank, Cunningham was a 30-year global marketing, communications, branding, and public affairs executive at Texas Instruments where she most recently served as Chief Citizenship Officer. While there, she founded the Dallas Fort Worth Corporate Citizenship Network creating a collaborative model for area corporations to strengthen social impact and sustainability.
