WELCOME TO HUNGER BUSTERS
No child in Dallas should go hungry. However, 8 out of 10 DISD students may not have access to a third meal.
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.
HUNGER BUSTERS 2024 GOAL
The need is ongoing, and this year's goal is larger than ever. $1,000,000 would help us to reach over 689,600 kids.
We provide meals daily to Dallas ISD students through our signature “Feed the Need” afterschool program.
When a growing child is adequately nourished, their physical and psychological health is enhanced - leading to a better quality of life and future opportunities.
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!
