THI is a capacity-building collaborative project. We seek to develop and implement strategies to end hunger through policy, education, community organizing, and community development. THI will convene federal, state and local government stakeholders with non-governmental organizations, churches, and local providers to develop a plan for an efficient use and delivery of our current resources to hungry individuals and families.
For more than twenty years, the Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) has been a nonpartisan, nonprofit policy institute committed to improving public policies to better the economic and social conditions of low- and moderate-income Texans. The center pursues this mission through independent research, policy analysis and development, public education, advocacy, coalition-building and technical assistance. The center neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate for office. We focus solely on evaluating public policy as it affects low- and moderate-income Texans.
The Texas Food Bank Network (TFBN) provides a unified voice among twenty food banks in support of a common mission to end hunger in Texas. Started in 1986, TFBN fosters and facilitates cooperation between the food banks affiliated with Feeding America and statewide resources, specifically state government. The members of TFBN provide the majority of the food distributed by over 3,200 local hunger relief agencies in all 254 Texas counties. Last year, TFBN food banks distributed over 298 million pounds of food to over three million hungry Texans.
