Project Overview

Target Hunger’s mission is to alleviate hunger and its root causes with an overall vision that no Houstonian goes hungry. Since 1989, Target Hunger has grown to include 6 food pantries, an extensive senior delivery program, more than 50 community food fairs each year, mobile distributions, plus a community organic garden yielding 6,000 pounds of fresh produce annually.

Sun Club provided $93,800 for Target Hunger to build a new outdoor garden that will feed an additional 400 families annually. The grant went towards the purchase of 2,400 crates of soil and elevated racks, Super Hoop shade structures, two greenhouses and a rainwater collection system with smart sprinkler irrigation.
