Nearly one in four Texas children do not have access to adequate nutritious meals on a regular basis. In fact, the latest USDA report found that 18 percent of Texas households (one in six) experienced food insecurity between 2011 and 2013.

As a proud state known for taking care of our own, we can—and must—do better. The West Texas Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of hunger relief organizations. We have provided over 4.1 million meals throughout our 19-county region. The need is great, and our goal to eradicate hunger in our region is even greater.

Of the households served by the West Texas Food Bank, 74 percent have incomes that fall at, or below, the federal poverty level. Fifty-eight percent of households have incomes of $10,000 or less, and 31 percent have annual incomes of $10,001-$20,000. Approximately 40 percent of West Texas Food Bank clients are under 18. Sixteen percent are over 65.

Lets work together to stomp out hunger.
