From the beginning, our goal has been to provide as many meals as we can to families in the Austin area. From serving one school with three families to our current (as of August 2021) 15 schools and 185 families we continue to serve families.
Today, we are providing food for 4992 meals per week, 19,968 meals per month or 259,584 meals per year.
As we seek to expand into other regions of the state, our impact will only become more significant, and we will see more children arriving at school with full stomachs and ready to learn.

How We're Impacting Families
My niece and I have been a part of the Hungry Souls program for about 2 years. My niece looks forward to Thursdays as that is when we get our groceries from Hungry Souls. We love the food provided and enjoy cooking together. To a bigger family, the meals provided may only feed them for the weekend, but to us, the meals can last us a few days. We depend on the meals provided to us. I really don't know what we would do without that additional help. We are blessed and thankful for Hungry Souls.

This program has been a great help for my family. We've learned to cook different foods which also has been a great blessing for my family. It's thanks to this program that I've been able to save money on food and with this I can take my children to play soccer. Thank you so much for making this possible. Many blessings!
The program has greatly impacted my family. We've been able to have food on our table and learn new healthy recipes, with the ingredients and recipe sheets that are provided in the bags every week. I am grateful to be part of this group, thank you so much Hungry Souls and Austin Achieve.
The impact that Hungry Souls has had on our community is beyond measurable. They have provided our community with resources at a time when it was much needed. I know our families have appreciated it very much. We are so honored and thankful to be a partner with this amazing organization.
