A Layoff Away from Hunger:
One Executive’s Story

Here's a scary thought: How many North Texans are just a layoff away from hunger? It’s a common misperception that only the poor or the homeless are hungry. The reality is that many hard-working North Texans from all different income levels are struggling just to make ends meet. Rising gas prices are driving up the costs of commutes, and rising grocery costs are putting enormous strain on many family food budgets. In these tough times, many find themselves a layoff, medical crisis or even a fender-bender away from going hungry.

Today, you can do something about it. Every $1 donation can provide a nutritious dinner to a family of three, helping them face each day with renewed hope for a brighter future.

Get Fed Up with Hunger. $1 feeds 3 people.


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.
