Souper Bowl of Caring in Action!

In 2007, Houston Independent School District took a proactive step to address the issue of student hunger by participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring event. Since its inception, the program has witnessed remarkable success and expansion. This year, one school alone raised 111,260 food items for hungry students in their district!

Understanding Generational Motivation for Generosity

Tackle Hunger's Executive Director, Alison Reese, completed this study in relation to her Leadership Fellowship in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning through the AIM-AHEAD program of the National Institute of Health. The study examines the hows and whys of generational differences in giving to charitable organizations.

How One NFL Alumni Helps Feed the Need

When Reggie Rusk, an NFL Alumni from the Houston area, heard about the needs at a neighborhood school, his mission was to help. His foundation helps kids with their athleticism, but then he found out that many of those same kids were going hungry. “I couldn’t believe the need,” he stated. Reggie created a campaign, using the Tackle Hunger Map, to collect donations so the athletic department at a local high school could feed their student athletes without having to take that money out of their budget. It is a win for all!
