With an aim to help and feed the poor, and hungry, the Indian American Council at Houston Food Bank (HFB-IAC) was formed and has been working to provide food assistance to thousands of food insecure individuals across HFB’s 18-county service area. It does that by raising hunger-awareness, encouraging active volunteering, conducting food drive campaigns, and raising crucial funds.
In the spirit of “give where you live”, the vision of HFB-IAC is for the Indian American community to be recognized as a leader in the fight against hunger in Southeast Texas.
With a rally cry of “Hunger Mitao!” (Wipe out Hunger), HFB-IAC seeks to mobilize the Indian American community around the issue of hunger that exists right here in Southeast Texas.
The Indian American Council has launched an ambitious “Million Meal March” campaign to help HFB provide meals to our neighbors in need. The noble cause received huge support and over 32, 000 meal packets were prepared.
The organizers who were happy with the support said that they will wipe out the hunger of at least some among the 40 million who are starving for food.
