Join Us to Fight Hunger

The Henderson County Hunger Coalition (HCHC) was founded thirty-five years ago by a small group of faith based volunteers who recognized a critical need to help feed hungry people in Henderson County. Today the HCHC Executive Board is made up of representatives from 9 local churches and Agudas Israel Congregation. We remain committed to relieving hunger in Henderson County by raising awareness about it. We hold the annual Hunger Walk to raise money that is distributed to Relief Agencies in Henderson County. All local Relief Agencies are invited to submit a grant application outlining their need for funds. Grant applications are reviewed by the HCHC Executive Board and decisions are made on how to distribute the funds raised. All funds are distributed and must be used for food in Henderson County.
