Hunger-Free Dallas County is a group of stakeholders that works collaboratively to assess needs, provide education, fill gaps that exist in the food system, and develop solutions to end hunger. Our goal is to increase community support systems, volunteerism, and usage of community resources to end food insecurity in Dallas County.
The mission of Hunger Free Dallas County is to increase food security in our communities through collaboration, education, and implementation of responsive strategies intended to address the root causes of hunger.
Everyone will have access to quality food and resources to meet basic needs.
