Target Hunger serves thousands of vulnerable households whose residents suffer from food insecurity each month. In 2020, Target Hunger distributed the equivalent of over 2 million meals to children, families, and seniors to help alleviate hunger in Houston’s impoverished northeast region.
This distribution of nutritious food is accomplished through multiple food pantries, educational food fairs, an extensive home delivery program, mobile distribution sites, and emergency food assistance. Target Hunger’s Willie H. & Gladys R. Goffney Community Garden serves as a productive green space in Kashmere Gardens that welcomes residents and volunteer groups and produces more than 9,000 pounds of produce organically. Additionally, our Green Mountain Energy Sun Club Shotwell Garden which opened in 2021 and is located at our main warehouse is expected to yield more organic produce from the 2,400 above ground planting containers.
