Feeding Texas - Community Capacity Corps [Lubbock, TX]
Feeding Texas leads a unified effort for a hunger-free Texas. We assist hungry Texans through a statewide network of twenty-one food banks, lead the public discussion on hunger in Texas, and strengthen the anti-hunger movement through collaboration and capacity-building. The Community Capacity Corps is made up of a creative and motivated team focused on alleviating the upstream, economic causes of hunger as well as the downstream effects of hunger on health. VISTAs build non-traditional partnerships to increase client access to new services, and strategically incorporate the voices of hungry Texans into the public conversation on hunger through StoryBank Texas and client feedback loop projects. With ample coaching and personal development opportunities, our corps offers emerging non-profit professionals a way to gain a level of experience above other entry-level positions. Collaborate with other VISTAs and non-profit professionals in a variety of positions, while building a foundation for a meaningful career.
