Rotary District 5930 Inspirational Service Award Presented to MHP Salud

June 26th, 2019|

Baylor University’s Texas Hunger Initiative presented MHP Salud with the Rotary District 5930 Inspirational Service Award for our commitment to provide solutions to help end hunger in our communities. Community Health Workers (CHWs) in our programs have played a pivotal role in addressing hunger and health in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley’s predominantly Latino neighborhoods, also known as Colonias. Colonias are full of hard-working families, but they often live close to or below the poverty line. These communities also face challenges in the form of unsafe housing, poor infrastructure, and the lack of critical resources and amenities. Even fresh food can be hard to find. CHWs in our programs conduct door-to-door outreach in Colonias to inform families where and how to access essential resources like food banks and community centers. The CHWs also provide information about federal assistance programs that are available to them.
