Thousands of homebound North Texans are unable to get out to see friends and family this Thanksgiving. But their holiday will be made a little brighter thanks to the generosity of volunteers with Meals on Wheels.
While the North Texas Food Bank’s Summer Food Service Program feeds about 2,000 children breakfast or lunch every weekday, executives say there are still thousands who aren’t in the program but qualify for the free meals.
Researchers and lawmakers refer to it as Food Insecurity or availability of food in areas and one’s access to it. In Austin today lawmakers are trying to break down why there are food shortages across the state and find ways to solve the problem.
A North Texas food pantry and ministry that has been around for more than a decade may soon be forced to close.
