There are good people doing great work in every community in Texas, but too often they are not connected with each other. Our office helps bring these groups together to assess the work being done in the community, identify gaps in services and collaborate to work toward food security.
Hunger Free Communities (HFCs) are composed of government and civic leaders, food security stakeholders, corporate representatives, people experiencing food insecurity, and volunteers from the community. THI relies on HFCs to work on the local level in communities, assessing the structure and procedures of food delivery systems, identifying resources and gaps, making decisions for change, and implementing their action plans in order to provide healthy and nutritious food to an increased number of people.
The Houston HFC is in its beginning stages and is always looking to add members. If you are interested in participating in the HFC, contact Megan Hoag.
