Texas is blessed with ample agricultural and economic resources. We have more than enough to help every Texan access the nutrition they need to succeed and move forward.
Feeding Texas leads the conversation to solve hunger in Texas with our words and actions. We help decision-makers craft effective public policies, pioneer programs that empower struggling families, and increase our understanding of hunger through original research and the voices of struggling Texans themselves.
Strengthening the Public Response
We inform and mobilize advocates and decision-makers at the state and federal levels to ensure that our public investments in nutrition and food security remain strong and effective.
We offer front-line expertise and unique perspective by providing public testimony, educating individual legislators and organizing our partners and allies across the state.
Food banks can't do it all. The causes and consequences of hunger are complex, so we collaborate with partners that can help our clients move from hunger to health, and from financial insecurity to stability.
Feeding Texas leads the way with an innovative, statewide Americorp*VISTA "Client Empowerment Corps" that develops connections between food banks and local providers of health and financial empowerment services. Learn more about this program.
Raising the Voices that Matter
Struggling Texans are the true experts on hunger. Our statewide storybanking initiative provides a mechanism to raise the voices of these families, placing their experiences at the center of the public conversation.
