HungerBusters.com Feeding Kids. Fueling Futures.
On June 18, 2015, the employees of The Law Office of Jay J. Murray volunteered to help make 1,300 sandwiches for the Hunger Busters Program.
Hunger Busters is a Dallas-based charity focused on feeding kids and fueling futures by providing a much-needed third meal of the day to food-insecure children in Dallas Independent School District through its signature “Feed the Need” after school program. With the help of committed volunteers, continuing and new partners and donors, Hunger Busters will take a big bite out of Dallas’ childhood hunger epidemic.
Over 137,000 (87%) of the children attending Dallas schools rely on school-subsidized breakfast and/or lunch as their only resource for food. All too often, these children go without dinner. Many of them have nothing to eat from school lunch one day until school breakfast the next
