How we make a difference

We work with faith-based and community organizations to increase awareness of food insecurity in Smith County and increase access to healthy foods for those most in need.

Our goal is to reduce the stigma associated with food insecurity and connect community partners to increase access to healthy foods. We host quarterly roadshow programs to bring in fresh produce and resources to areas in Smith County with the greatest need. We also host hunger and poverty awareness events and work with local businesses to help them serve SNAP and WIC clients effectively.

Hundreds of families came out to a new event offering free healthy produce and information about community resources. The Smith County Food Security Council and the East Texas Food Bank teamed up to put on the first “Produce Drop and Community Resource Roadshow” at New Days Community Church on Tuesday.

The SCFSC held our first Produce Drop and Community Resource Roadshow on August 13, 2019. The East Texas Food Bank provided produce for 893 families and 8 local organizations connected community members to needed healthcare services.
