HUNGER BUSTERS DAY IS MAY 25, 2023
In Dallas County, more than 118,000 of the children attending Dallas schools qualify for subsidized school breakfasts and/or lunches. All too often, these children go without dinner.
Dallas County ranks sixth in the U.S. for the highest number of people living in food-insecure households.
Every school day, Hunger Busters provides nearly 3,500 dinners to children in Dallas ISD who don’t have access to a third meal at home.
Can Change Lives.
Hunger Busters helps boost school attendance, test scores and classroom behavior. We solve a problem that when not addressed becomes a larger issue as school-aged children become adults. We function because of loyal volunteers who make the meals daily, as well as through private donations and corporate sponsorships.
Meals on a Mission
We are not a food bank, and we do not serve soon-to-be expired or damaged food. All of our meals are made daily and served fresh to the children. As the students dismiss for the day, teachers, volunteers and the school staff ensure they take home a quality meal that is not just tasty, but healthy!
