About the Capital Area Food Bank
--The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas is to nourish hungry people and lead the community in ending hunger.
--In the past 12 months, CAFB distributed 24 million pounds of food to 300,000 Central Texans in its 21 county service territory.
--In Central Texas, 1 in 4 children are at risk of hunger.
--Summer is our busiest time of the year and we currently serve about 48,000 per week, and 20,000 of those are children
--Because we know that just because school is out doesn't mean hunger takes a vacation.
--All children deserve to have their dreams nourished. Access to nutritious meals throughout the summer is essential to have healthy kids ready to start school in the fall.
--There is a strong correlation between hunger and educational achievement. Children cannot succeed in school if they are hungry.
