The Hunger Consortium

Welcome to The Hunger Consortium

LAUNCH has a new initiative: help address hunger at Texas A&M and food insecurity worldwide by bringing together faculty, staff, students, and community resources to address ongoing needs.

Read the USDA's report

Did you know that one in seven Texas households suffered from food insecurity in 2014-2016?
Another survey showed that 36% of college students did not get enough to eat.
We all know how hard it is to concentrate when we're hungry, so, what can we do about it?
