Individuals and organization across the state are working tirelessly to increase food security but don’t have the time or resources to work together strategically. Hunger is a complex problem that cannot be solved by one single individual or organization, but coordination and collaboration takes time and effort and can be difficult, especially with limited resources. The Texas Hunger Initiative provides the expertise and support to foster collaboration. We convene, train, inform and support communities to assess local hunger, and evaluate barriers to food security, in order to become a Hunger Free Community. This is where the Baylor University Hunger Free Communities Corps (HFCC) comes in. HFCC’s mission is to help communities think strategically, organizations work collaboratively, and programs function efficiently. Because when we all come together, we create solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts. Further help on this page can be found by clicking here.
