Paper Plates Hunger Project
We asked our Partner Agencies to have their clients write on simple paper plates why they faced hunger in West Texas. Here are some of their answers.
The photo in the shape of Texas shows just some of the thousands of paper plates gathered by all the food banks in the Texas Food Bank Network.
Take a moment to read these personal stories and please send the links to your friends. We hope it changes the way you think about hungry West Texans.
