The South Plains Hunger Solution Coalition is a community led group who works in partnership with the Texas Hunger Initiative regional office – a branch of the Baylor University Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty – to address issues of food insecurity and poverty within the region.
The South Plains Hunger Solution Coalition is comprised of four distinct teams – Hunger & Horticulture, Child Hunger, Senior Hunger and Double Up Food Bucks. Each team focuses on addressing food insecurity and poverty through their unique perspective.

In light of ongoing changes related to COVID-19 and in an abundance of caution for all of our partners, stakeholders and friends, the South Plains Hunger Solutions Coalition has decided to postpone our 2020 South Plains Hunger Summit scheduled for April 23, 2020. We are making plans to host our event later in the year and look forward to seeing each of you then. In the interim we are hopeful to provide online content to continue our discussions about the work being done in the South Plains and we encourage you to stay engaged and informed.
The Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty has launched a website dedicated to information regarding school meals for students displaced from their campuses due to school closures and we encourage you to forward it to anyone you feel may benefit from it. The website can be found at: https://www.covid19txfoodresources.org/
This is a new and uncharted experience for everyone and we know that fear and uncertainty are rampant. However, we also recognize that hunger does not ever cease and more importantly, in cases such as these has the potential to become much worse. The South Plains Hunger Solutions Coalition and the Texas Hunger Initiative are committed to continuing our work to feed our communities and ensure access to resources for anyone who needs them. To that end both organizations are participating in conversations with other businesses and organizations in our community who are also focused on addressing hunger and health. As we have more information we will share it through this website and via email updates. If you would like to be added to our email list serve please send an email to Dr. Heather Martinez at email@example.com. If you need assistance or information please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to help you in any way we can.
Know that our thoughts and prayers are with each of you and we wish you safety, health and peace.
