Food, Nutrition, & Healthy Communities

HFT Workshop Series


The Hunger Free Texans Workshop Series is a program that addresses community service gaps by providing information and education on select food access and community nutrition topics that are important to Texas communities.  Workshops provide content which helps supplement organizations’ knowledge on certain topics.  Information gleaned helps organizations build, develop or enhance their current or future programming.   The workshop series also brings awareness and encourages programming in service deserts, where there is limited to no programming.  The longer length of the workshops provides dedicated time to learn as much information as possible on a certain topic.  Participants also hear from best practices currently operating similar programs and each workshop incorporates networking time with other peer participants who may be at the same stages of building or enhancing their programs.  The interactive workshops are 3.5 hours in length, include lunch, workshop materials, and start later in the morning to allow participants to drive in and return home the same day of the workshop.   Workshops are open to any school, community or government organization across the state.

The Eat Healthy

Prescription Program


The Eat Healthy Prescription Program is an effort to get healthcare providers and professionals to encourage their patients to eat healthy to stay healthy.  Physicians and allied health professionals write a patient a prescription for fresh fruits and vegetables with the hope that the patient will go to their local grocery store or farmers market and pick up these prescribed healthy foods.  The allied health professional can also prescribe exercise for the patient such as walking, running, biking or gym attendance which encourages the patient to be physically active to stay healthy.
