Hunger Busters
Feeding kids and fueling futures

Providing a much-needed third meal to food-insecure children

What We Do

We provide meals daily to Dallas ISD students through our signature "Feed the Need" after school program. Annually, Hunger Busters provides over 350,000 meals to 11 schools and 6 after school programs. With the help of committed volunteers, caring partners and donors, Hunger Busters will take a big bite out of Dallas’ childhood hunger epidemic.
