Hunger in Texas

20%, or 1 in 4 Texas children experiences hunger.

11% of households with seniors in Texas face food insecurity.

Rural families often face higher rates of hunger because of the unique challenges of living remotely. These challenges include poor geographic access to healthy food, limited or unreliable job opportunities, and high rates of un- and under-employment. Addressing hunger in rural areas is a unique challenge.
