You are invited to a Better Neighbors presentation at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Tyler featuring Texas Impact staff and speakers to discuss food security and hunger in Texas. Presenters will discuss how local congregations can address hunger in their communities, the Community Partner Recruitment Initiative (CPRI), public policy opportunities, and local efforts to end hunger.

Texas Impact is the state's oldest and largest interfaith network made up of member denominational bodies, individual congregations, and tens of thousands of individual Texans of faith. Texas Impact is a non-profit, non-partisan network promoting civic engagement around public policy issues of shared concern among our member denominations. (More info at

At the event, Congregational Outreach Director Scott Atnip and the Tyler CPRI team will discuss food security, hunger and the Community Partners Recruitment Initiative.

The presentation is a part of Texas Impact's Better Neighbors initiative. Better Neighbors is a new initiative aimed at educating and engaging local congregations on ways to be a "Better Neighbor," reaching out to people in their local communities through direct service and policy implementation. Every month, Texas Impact will provide resources on a "Focus of the Month" campaign aimed at educating local communities of faith on how they can partner with the state to implement public policy on the local level.
