About No Kid Hungry Texas:
No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 4 Texas kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids get healthy meals every day. When we all work together, we can make sure children have the food they need.  Using No Kid Hungry and Texas Hunger Initiative have partnered to end childhood hunger in Texas since 2011. With a new multi-year  investment in 2015 from the Social Innovation Fund, a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, No Kid Hungry Texas is able to deepen its work, focusing on ending childhood hunger in the Dallas Metroplex, Southeast Texas, and Heart of Texas communities. Thousands of kids face hunger in these communities - but we're changing that.
