The Dallas Coalition for Hunger Solutions (DCHS) was created in 2012, chaired by Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, and spearheaded by the Texas Hunger Initiative, the North Texas Food Bank, and several other nonprofits and religious organizations that make up the leadership team. Through five different action teams, we bring together community leaders who are engaged in the work of addressing poverty and hunger to take action in a collaborative setting.
The mission of DCHS is to empower residents to gain equitable access to healthy food.
The coalition is led by a Leadership Team, which includes the chairs of each of the five Action Teams. Once a year the Coalition holds a Hunger Summit to invite the entire Dallas community to learn about the activities of the Coalition and the ways they can be involved in ending hunger locally.
