President, Houston Food Bank
September is Hunger Action Month, when the Houston Food Bank brings attention to hunger in our community and things that people can do to join the fight against hunger.
One in four children in southeast Texas is at-risk of hunger, or food insecure. On a typical day, 5,000 kids are hungry and will have nothing to eat.
Many children are looking forward to school getting back in session because it means they have access again to school lunches and breakfasts.
Our Kids Cafe program serves nutritious meals after school to low income children at sites throughout the greater Houston area.
