Mission Statement

The key program at Hunger Busters is focused on feeding kids and fueling futures by providing a much-needed third meal of the day to food-insecure children in Dallas Independent School District through its signature "Feed the Need" after school program.

Description

In 2017, Hunger Busters provided 350,000 meals to 11 DISD schools and 6 after school programs. That is over 137,000 (87%) of the children attending Dallas schools. Of which they rely on school-subsidized breakfast and/or lunch as their only resource for food. All too often, these children go without dinner. These children are twice as likely to be absent from school than their peers not suffering from hunger. Research consistently shows that increasing the nutrition of a food-insecure child improves health, educational performance, and the opportunity to grow into a civic-minded adult. What makes Hunger Busters distinct is that with the help of committed volunteers, continuing and new partners and donors, Hunger Busters will take a big bite out of Dallas’ childhood hunger epidemic. Hunger Busters is a non-profit organization that receives private donations. We operate on private funding along with corporate grants.
