Communities across Texas, and the country, are full of great individuals doing great work. Often, these individuals, and their organizations, work in silos, doing their own projects and having their own impact, and not connecting with others working in the same arena. Coalitions bring individuals together, helping them focus on similar goals and building synergy that is greater than the sum of its parts. They are having a significant impact and helping communities take strides towards reducing their food insecurity.
THI is a national leader in the movement to create and support local hunger and poverty coalitions. We convene, train, inform and support communities to assess local hunger, evaluate barriers to food security, and broaden access to the resident food system through short- and long-term planning.
