Offer Free Summer Meals, End Hunger

Posted by Communications Department on Thursday, May 11, 2017

Help put an end to hunger. In partnership with the Texas Department of Agriculture, THI is working to feed more children and teens throughout the summer months by connecting sites where youth are with community sponsors. By utilizing USDA funds, community sponsors provide meals, at no cost, to local sites. Sites can be found at schools, community centers, parks, libraries and in apartment communities. The Texas Hunger Initiative (THI) can help you determine if free summer meals are a good fit for your community. 

There is no direct cost to the apartment community. Basic requirements to participate include a short training, having a safe space for the youth to eat and having an adult (staff or volunteer) responsible for accepting the meals and tracking the number of meals served. 

THI is available to answer your questions and help you connect with the appropriate sponsor.  If you have concerns about site limitations for this program, please let us know, as we may be able to work around your limitation or concern.
