The Food Bank’s Public Policy Platform

Across the 24 counties Feeding the Gulf Coast serves, nearly 350,400 people face hunger. Feeding the Gulf Coast works every day through a network of community partners to provide food to people in need. However, we know that to truly address the root cause of hunger, we must strengthen food assistance programs and invest in anti-hunger policies to help ensure no one goes hungry.

Feeding the Gulf Coast operates several Federal Nutrition Programs that help us efficiently use available means to fight hunger. These programs are critical in our ability to help expand our community partners’ capacities to serve their communities. Therefore, the food bank works at the federal, state, and local levels to amplify voices and engage key representatives in driving change and strengthening policies that create systemic progress in ending hunger.
