Strengthening Our Community.
Target Hunger’s mission is to alleviate hunger and its root causes in the northeast Houston neighborhoods we serve.
Making a Difference In Lives Everyday.
Ending Hunger in Houston.
Started in 1989 as a way to combat hunger in inner city Houston, Target Hunger has grown from a program of the United Way to a highly successful non-profit that serves the northeast Houston area. Also working closely as a partner with the Houston Food Bank, Target Hunger provides critical food assistance to the most vulnerable in our community.
Providing Food for Houston’s Children, Families, and Seniors.
Target Hunger is one of Houston’s largest non-profit 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.
