All money distributed to pantries in other states includes dollars donated by corporations or individuals who specifically requested that their donations go to another state. It also includes money specifically raised in another state. For example, in the years 2001-2005 Buckets raised almost $250,000 in Dallas from contributions from Texans for the North Texas Food Bank. Buckets is required by the Dallas Mavericks and the individuals to deliver those donations to the North Texas Food Bank.
