Curbing Hunger: A Challenge for Us All
During the holidays, most of us look forward to a bounty of good eating, but for many Texas kids, the best foods—real fruits, vegetables, and whole grains—are hard to come by. Making sure that children have what they need to grow up healthy will require action to bring nutritious, affordable food options to more of Texas' rural and inner-city communities.
Our new toolkit offers child hunger advocates a way to bring attention to this vital issue and involve local leaders, as well. The step-by-step guide even shows how to lead an awareness-raising activity, where community members learn what it's like for families living in "food deserts," areas without enough healthy food options. Texas has more of these deserts than any other state. Check out the toolkit now.
