Trey Hoobler began his career in 2003 in real estate, and this took him all around the world, from Mexico to Europe and everywhere in between. Eventually, after spending years managing corporate portfolios, he decided to make a change and follow his passion by doing something that truly helps those who need it the most. He joined Florida State University in 2007 and was asked to assist in the creation of an intercultural dialogue program that focused on university bound students.
In 2014, he made his way back to Dallas, becoming the CEO of Hunger Busters.
In 2014, he made his way back to Dallas, becoming the CEO of Hunger Busters. To date, he has increased private donations an impressive 30% annually, started a grants program, and raised over $125,000 from individual foundations as well as $1.2 million that was awarded from the Crystal Charity Ball. Under his tenure, food production has increased upwards of 200%, and it’s expected to grow at an even faster rate in the coming year.
To say that Jason Garza is a busy man would be a gross understatement! He leads our sandwich production and delivery programs, which involves making and distributing at least 350,000 meals each year to DISD schools. He also coordinates all of our fundraising and volunteer events. He is personally responsible for feeding thousands of children all around Dallas, and thanks to his efforts and logistical expertise, he’s helped our outreach consistently grow so we can better uplift the community one healthy meal at a time.
Running Hunger Busters is much more complicated than just making a ton of sandwiches and handing them out to children. In order to figure out who needs food assistance, where, and how it should be applied all comes down to having the right data, and that’s where Peter Swanson is an expert. Peter is the CEO of Bowtie Business Intelligence and 501ops, a DFW-based technology company that helps for-profit and nonprofit organizations collect, extract, store, and analyze mountains of data. Thanks to him, we’re able to provide services exactly where they’re needed so they can make the most impact, maximizing every donated dollar and volunteer hour to the fullest.
