3 year commitment

Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families, who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.

Our partner, Galveston County Food Bank, commits to being a place where families in need can find nutritious choices. Over the next three years, it will encourage healthier eating among the families it serves by evaluating the nutritional quality of the food it distributes, increasing the amount of nutritious food it provides in partnership with 50 food pantries throughout Galveston County, Texas. Understanding the importance of continued health and wellness, it promises to develop nutritional guidelines for the food it distributes, encourage the selection of healthier food items and build a healthier culture by ensuring consistent access to nutrition expertise to guide in all of its decision making.

We are proud to work with an organization making such a positive impact on hunger and nutrition for families in Galveston County.

Low-income people are at increased risk for both food insecurity and obesity
