Mission: To lead efforts to create change to end hunger in our community.

The Hunger-Free Jackson coalition was founded in 2014 with the aim to raise awareness of hunger in Jackson, Mississippi and find community-based solutions to end it. Social service providers, state health officials, farmers, researchers, and other advocates came together to leverage the power of collaboration to address the serious – and often invisible – issue of hunger in our community.

Together, we believe our individual efforts and unique perspectives will create a strong, unified voice to influence positive social change in the flight against hunger in Jackson.
