Join Us to End Childhood Hunger in America

Our Impact

In Texas, 1 in 4 kids struggle with hunger. Only 10% of kids who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch area also getting summer meals; only 62% of the same kids receive school breakfast.

Your support through a ticket or sponsorship purchase will help launch school breakfast programs, recruit summer meals, and empower families to shop for an prepare healthy meals. It also provides grants to the most effective hunger-fighting organization across the country to help them end child hunger in their communities with the bulk of the proceeds staying in Texas and going to local non-profits. In Houston, those organizations are the Houston Food Bank, Kids’ Meals, Texas Hunger Initiative and The Center for Public Policy Priorities.
