We are an Austin-based organization that partners with local schools to provide weekend and school break meals for students and their families.

Our Name has Multiple Meanings

for a Reason

Being hungry takes on many forms besides physical hunger. We see this in our kids and their families every day. Some are hungry for food, some for material needs, some for health and some for friendship and community. Their soul is troubled and we have been called to help.
The greatest hunger we all experience is the need for relationship. And the greatest relationship we are designed to have is one with our creator. Therefore, our end goal at Hungry Souls is to demonstrate the love of Jesus in tangible ways to produce an opportunity to introduce families to Jesus.
