The Wake County Food Security Program has hosted AmeriCorps VISTA members for over five years. Our members address hunger at the systems level, identifying barriers to access and building the capacity of organizations and individuals to make our county more food secure. Our program hosts seven full time members based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. Members are stationed at the NCSU Cooperative Extension, Wake County Center within the Food Security program. Our office is a hub of innovation and members take part in programs that build their leadership and community development skills while also being an agent of change in our community. VISTA members will receive a $300 rent subsidy or $300/month is gas/grocery cards.
