Childhood Hunger
is Real in North Texas

Nearly 1 in 4 North Texas children are hungry today. That’s 280,000 kids in 13 counties. It might be one of your children’s classmates. It could be a playmate down the street. It may be one of the thousands of children affected by a recent layoff of a parent or guardian. The effects of hunger on these children is devastating. They often suffer from a lack of focus, gradually falling behind at school. For many, the situation feels completely hopeless.

Today, you can do something about it. Every $1 donation can provide three meals to a hungry child and, ultimately, help children face their futures with hope instead of dread.


All over North Texas, people are fed up with hunger in our community. Our Get Fed Up merchandise is designed to help them spread the word, raise money, and inspire others to join the fight. From yard signs and T-shirts to bumper stickers and buttons, you can find a great start to your campaign here.
