Hunger hurts our kids’ futures

HAM Blog_ChildHunger

A child’s chance for a bright tomorrow starts with getting enough food to eat today. Did you know that over 85,000 East Texas children – 1 in every 4 kids – may not know where they will get their next meal?

Kids who don’t get enough to eat — especially during their first three years — begin life at a serious disadvantage. When they’re hungry, children are more likely to be hospitalized and will face higher risks of health conditions like anemia and asthma. As they grow up, kids struggling to get enough to eat are more likely to have problems in school and other social situations.

The East Texas Food Bank works to fight hunger for children through year-round programs.
  • On the weekends, our BackPack Program provides easy to open food that doesn’t require any cooking.
  • After school, the Kids Café program provides healthy snacks and meals.
  • During the summer, the Summer Food Program provides healthy breakfast and lunch meals.
  • At home, our Food Pantry Partners and Benefits Assistance Program provide meals for the whole family.

Feeding children facing hunger is a main priority for the East Texas Food Bank, but we can’t do it without your help. September is Hunger Action Month and we need everyone helping us fight hunger.

No action is too smail to help! By learning about hunger, committing to help and speaking up you can help us fight hunger. Click here to see how you can “take action” for the children in your community now.
