Food4Hunger Food Sort: Did you know that Texas is the third highest state in the nation with food insecure
people? Food insecurity exists when people lack sustainable physical or economic access to enough safe,
nutritious, and socially acceptable food for a healthy and productive life. 16.4% of people in Texas are food insecure.
Each week 419,000 people in Texas need emergency food assistance. Together, we can make a difference in the
lives of those who are less fortunate than us. Each Sunday, the people of Bent Tree leave needed food supplies by
the main entrances into the worship auditorium. Every quarter, Bent Tree needs 45 people to help sort and
package the food after the second service. We distribute on a rotating basis to four of our local pantries with whom
we have ongoing relationships.
