Plano, TX – May 22, 2014 – NTT DATA, Inc., a leading IT services provider, today announced a three-year commitment to support the North Texas Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids – Plano Program Leaving the Site Icon.  A united effort of Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere and the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) Leaving the Site Icon, Food 4 Kids provides backpacks full of nutritious, kid-friendly food for them to take home on Friday afternoons to last throughout the weekend.

“We are proud to support the Food 4 Kids- Plano Program and are thrilled at the opportunity to make a difference in our community to end childhood hunger,” said John McCain, President and CEO of NTT DATA, Inc. “We believe it’s important to the future of our community’s vitality, and are honored to support programs like Food 4 Kids whose dedication is to improve the quality of life for children, and strengthen our communities.”

The Food 4 Kids – Plano program provides backpacks full of nonperishable, kid-friendly food for them to take home on Friday afternoons.
