We recently had a conversation with Desmian Alexander from the Texas Hunger Initiative about ways her organization is trying to end hunger through community organizing and community development.
Right now, the group’s focus is helping more children access free summer meals.
If you want to launch and staff a new summer meals site, contact the Texas Hunger Initiative at texashunger.org and they’ll connect you.
To find a summer food location near you, call 211 or text F-O-O-D-T-X to 877-877, or for Spanish directions, text C-O-M-I-D-A-T-X to 877-877. NOWCastSA also has a map you can use to find the nearest location to you.
