Feeding Texas

The Feeding Texas network is the largest hunger-relief organization in Texas. Together with 21 member food banks, we reach over 5 million Texans annually with food and resources and engage the state in the fight against hunger. Our goal is to ensure access to adequate, nutritious food for all Texans, improve the health and financial stability of the communities we serve, and engage the state in advocating for hunger solutions. 

Feeding Texas will gain capacity to explore new ways to digitally engage existing advocacy and politically active audience and largely untapped digital audiences of people experiencing hunger/community members.
