Food Programs gaining traction across the state and in San Angelo

Good news on the hunger front both in San Angelo and statewide (see links below) It's encouraging to see the momentum feeding programs are gaining across the state. All of this fits in quite nicely with the Texas Hunger Initiative.
  • Todd Staples of the Texas Department of Agriculture recently challenged Texas mayors to increase participation in Summer feeding programs. This is exactly what the San Angelo Food Planning Association is committed to this summer. Southland Baptist Church is a major participant in this effort.

  • Our own mayor, Alvin New, has been very supportive of the initiative here in San Angelo. There's a great article in today's paper about his involvement with Meals for the Elderly. Check it out here: Meal cause gets mayor's aid.
