Target Hunger

Founded in 1989, Target Hunger works to alleviate hunger and its root causes in the Houston neighborhoods we serve. Our vision is a Houston where no one goes hungry and everyone can provide food for themselves and their families. Target Hunger is on the front lines of hunger every day through its food distribution system that includes six food pantries, an extensive senior delivery program, educational food fairs, mobile pantry distributions, emergency food services, and two Community Gardens. Target Hunger is one of Houston's largest organizations providing direct food assistance to food insecure children, families, and seniors who face the risk of going hungry every day. In 2020, Target Hunger distributed food to nearly 31,000 unduplicated individuals, a more than 50% increase over the amount of people that were served in 2019.
