The Texas Feeding Minds Project is an awareness effort of Texas PBS Stations to combat childhood obesity and hunger in Texas. The project is bringing attention to environmental and behavioral factors surrounding the two often overlapping problems and will provide information and resources via on-air, online and community outreach venues.

 

Outreach

The production, titled "Feeding Minds: Texas Takes on Hunger and Obesity" will premiered on all Texas PBS Stations, including Panhandle PBS, on February 23rd, 2012.  Organized by KACV, the production highlights seven Texas cities to see what food banks, schools, community organizations, congregations and individuals are doing to combat childhood hunger and obesity.  The program is made possible by a grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.
