Feeding Texas leads a unified effort for a hunger-free Texas. We assist hungry Texans through a statewide network of twenty-one food banks, lead the public discussion on hunger in Texas, and strengthen the anti-hunger movement through collaboration and capacity-building. The Community Capacity Corps is a creative and motivated team focused on alleviating the upstream, economic causes of hunger as well as the downstream effects of hunger on health. VISTAs build non-traditional partnerships to increase community access to new services, and strategically incorporate the voices of hungry Texans into the public conversation on hunger through StoryBank Texas and community feedback loop projects. With ample coaching and personal development opportunities, our corps offers emerging non-profit professionals a way to gain a level of experience above other entry-level positions. Collaborate with other VISTAs and non-profit professionals in a variety of positions, while building a foundation for a meaningful career.
The Year 2 Impact Measurement VISTA will support Central Texas Food Bank in the testing and creation of a Client Feedback Strategy. The purpose of this project is to support a development of a standardized process for clients to provide feedback on services across locations and programs, and to use feedback data to inform continuous quality improvement efforts and impact reporting. Example activities include project management, reviewing best practices and existing efforts, testing and evaluating solutions, and consistently assessing Food Bank needs and priorities around client feedback. All Community Capacity Corps VISTAs will also engage community members through one-on-one interviews or focus groups to gather stories for a statewide StoryBank with a focus on learning about the authentic lives of people experiencing food insecurity and presenting the truth of hunger in our community to a public audience.
