About Us


The Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty brings together a large network of researchers and practitioners working on a national scale to find innovative hunger and poverty solutions through such projects as the Texas Hunger Initiative, the Global Hunger and Migration Project and the newly launched Hunger Data Lab. Collaborative scholars conduct interdisciplinary hunger and poverty research with local, state, national and global relevance.

As a project of the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty, the Texas Hunger Initiative conducts university-based research to determine what interventions work to address food insecurity and provides the support and expertise to coordinate work in communities and put those programs into action. THI has offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Lubbock, McAllen, San Angelo and Waco.

To date, THI has provided technical assistance to more than 25 states and plays a prominent role in Washington, D.C., in developing scalable solutions to address hunger and poverty nationwide.
