Hunger Mitao!

Hunger Mitao means “Wipe Out Hunger”!

With a rally cry of “Hunger Mitao!” The Indian American Council at Houston Food Bank (HFB-IAC) seeks to mobilize the Indian American community around the issue of hunger that exists in Southeast Texas. HFB-IAC was formed to raise awareness, improve engagement, as well as channel resources and contributions of the Indian American community towards HFB’s mission of food for better lives.

The Indian American Council has launched an ambitious “Million Meal March” campaign to help the Houston Food Bank provide meals to our neighbors in need. HFB-IAC is working to provide food assistance to thousands of food insecure individuals across HFB’s 18-county service area by raising hunger-awareness, encouraging active volunteering, conducting food drive campaigns, and fundraising.

In the spirit of “give where you live”, the vision of HFB-IAC is for the Indian American community to be recognized as a leader in the fight against hunger in Southeast Texas.

Get Involved

The Indian American community can engage with HFB-IAC in many ways –helping raise awareness, hands-on volunteering at the food bank, or raising food and funds – to combat increasing food insecurity in southeast Texas.

Hunger Mitao

Hunger Mitao Spring Fund Drive is a fundraising campaign of the Indian American Council during the month of March. In the spirit of “give where you live”, this spring the Indian American Council aims to raise $1,000 for the Houston Food Bank to provide food for better lives – Hunger Mitao!

Spring is a time of renewal! Please renew your commitment to help children, seniors, veterans, and families in Southwest Texas who experience food insecurity. Through partnerships with the food industry, the Food Bank can procure more food than we can buy. This year, stretch your gift to be more impactful through this online fund drive. Make a donation to allow the Houston Food Bank to procure and distribute exactly what is needed for their feeding programs. No gift is too small. Make your impact felt now!

Hunger Mitao Month is a signature campaign of the Indian American Council and is observed during the month of India’s Independence Day (August 15). The vision is to showcase the unity, solidarity and spirit of the Indian American community by conducting a fund drive across the region served by Houston Food Bank.
