Waco Chamber of Commerce looks to end hunger


The Waco Chamber of Commerce is leading the effort to end hunger in McLennan County.

A town hall meeting Wednesday covered various topics, including the Texas Health and Human Services Community Partner Program and providing breakfast in the classroom.

"Our goal is to get a strategic plan in place, and have some good strategies so that anyone who wants to help end community hunger can find a way to get involved, find a way to get plugged in," Alexis Weaver, Director of Community Affairs, said.

Currently Texas ranks fifth highest in the country for child food insecurity with more than 1.8 million children at risk of going hungry.
