NH Food Insecurity - YMCA of Strafford County
 
 
 
The New Hampshire Food Insecurity AmeriCorps program is a full time VISTA service opportunity. AmeriCorps members serve with community based organizations, youth serving organizations and colleges to build capacity for local communities to address food insecurity. This VISTA Program provides high-impact professional development and training for our VISTA members. Training addresses skills required to carry out the assigned VISTA role, as well as skill-building that will be valuable to the VISTA member in their future professional pursuits. The program is a cohort-based experience that creates the opportunity to learn from peers in the program, to share what is learned in service, and to foster a supportive service year community.
