How to Help Those With Food Insecurity Throughout Texas
“Is it not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice … Is it not to share your bread with the hungry?” Isaiah 58:6-7
In Texas alone, there are 4.7 million people who are food insecure (18.3%), and the statistics are even more staggering for children — 20% of Texas children.
The Dallas Coalition for Hunger Solutions works in five ways:
- Fruit and Vegetable Gardening
- Nutrition Education
- Emergency Food Assistance
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Child Hunger
