Anti-Hunger Corps-Foodlink

Anti-Hunger Corps-Foodlink Hunger Free America (HFA), in conjunction with some of the nation’s most effective anti-hunger and poverty organizations, is in its third year of the Anti-Hunger Corps (AHC), an AmeriCorps VISTA program that places members at agencies nationwide.

This program engages VISTA members and partnering organizations in moving families beyond the soup kitchen by breaking down barriers and providing improved access to healthful, nutritious foods.

The AHC VISTA program aims to address hunger, poverty, and build the capacity of the agencies that address these issues.

Members will assist unemployed and under-employed people to obtain job training, job placement, and financial literacy services; improve access to food from the government and nonprofit sources for targeted populations in particular and food insecure people in general; enable residents of food deserts to access healthier foods through farmers markets and community gardens; more low-income children to obtain free school breakfasts and summer meals; effective nonprofit groups fighting hunger and poverty to raise more money and recruit and manage more volunteers, particularly high-impact and skilled volunteers.
