Hunger is a very real problem in East Texas. 177,016 people live in poverty, and 223,000 are near the poverty line. Having a limited income means that people must often choose between paying their bills and having enough food for themselves and their families. The East Texas Food Bank is working daily to ensure that no one in their community is forced to go without enough food by: - Providing food to people in the 26-county East Texas area through their 200+ agencies and ensuring food is distributed throughout the 20,000 square mile area through their Rural Outreach and Delivery Program. - As a member of America?s Second Harvest ? the nation?s food bank network, they are one of two food banks in the nation designated as a staging area for disaster food storage. - Connecting eligible East Texans with social service benefits, especially nutrition benefits. - Educating people in the East Texas area about nutrition education including the cooking, nutrition and food budgeting skills they need to make healthy and economical food choices.

Child Hunger Initiatives: Their child hunger initiatives are focused on making sure children are being fed well in order that they grow healthier, get more out of school, and are able to achieve what they want without lack of adequate food. Kids Cafe is an after-school program that serves snacks and meals to kids in a safe environment. BackPack Program supplements weekend meals by sending kids home with backpacks full of easy-to-prepare foods to last throughout weekend. Summer Food Service Program exists to make sure school-aged children and youth who normally receive meals during the school year do not go hungry during the summer when these programs no longer operate. In addition to food, their programs also offer various forms of Nutrition Education aimed especially at youth. Senior Servings: An innovative program developed by the East Texas Food Bank, Senior Servings exists to ensure that elders in their community receive adequate food over the weekends when other services, such as Meals on Wheels, do not operate. Rural Outreach and Delivery delivers food and other grocery items from the Food Bank to strategic sites in outlying communities enabling rural agencies to better benefit from membership with the Food Bank. Produce People Care: distributes fresh fruits and vegetable to clients through partner agencies. In the past five years, fresh produce distribution has grown from 700,000 pounds a year to over 3 million pounds a year. Nutrition Education: promotes a long-term solution to hunger and poor nutritional habits by providing parents on a low income struggling to feed their families the cooking, nutrition and food budgeting skills they need to make healthy and economical food choices.
