Feeding Texas-Community Capacity Corps VISTA LEADER [Austin]
Feeding Texas leads a unified effort for a hunger-free Texas. We assist hungry Texans through a statewide network of twenty-one food banks, lead the public discussion on hunger in Texas, and strengthen the anti-hunger movement through collaboration and capacity-building. The Community Capacity Corps is an innovative program focused on alleviating the upstream, economic causes of hunger as well as the downstream effects of hunger on health. VISTAs assess local communities, build non-traditional partnerships to increase client access to new services, and strategically incorporate the voices of hungry Texans into the public conversation on hunger through Storybanking and other initiatives.
