Hunger Free Communities

Tom Green County Hunger Coalition, our Hunger Free Community Coalition

The Tom Green County Hunger Coalition (TGCHC) is a coalition of organizations and individuals committed to making Tom Green County food secure. The mission of the Coalition is to empower Tom Green County residents to gain equal access to healthy food. The Tom Green County Hunger Coalition is made up of organizations representing the civic, nonprofit, business and faith communities.

TGCHC currently works in the areas of Community Gardens, Summer Meals, and Health and Wellness to:

  1. Increase awareness of child nutrition programs
  2. Grow and provide access to healthy food (production-focused)
  3. Increase awareness of non-federally funded anti-hunger programs and resources
  4. Promote a healthier and more vibrant community

The Coalition is currently working with stakeholders to determine areas of expansion necessary to achieve the goal of a Hunger Free Tom Green County.  If you have an interest to be a part of the discussions, please contact our office.
