Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps VISTA (July)
 
 
 
Hunger Free America (HFA), in conjunction with some of the nation’s most effective and innovative nonprofit organizations, is beginning its seventh year of the Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps (AHOC), a multi-state, 55+ member AmeriCorps VISTA program supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service, USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service and the Walmart Foundation. This program engages VISTA members and partnering organizations in HFA’s mission by breaking down barriers to anti-hunger and employment/training support programs by developing a plan to improve access with specific emphasis on SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly Food Stamps) and the SNAP Employment and Training programs. AHOC members work with anti-hunger organizations in building their capacity and sustainability to ensure programs continue long after the VISTA members serve their term. Often, projects worked on by VISTA members include some of the following: recruiting, training, and managing volunteers, convening community members to survey effectiveness of programs, training organizational staff to provide nutrition education information, enhancing awareness of programs by engaging community members in educational opportunities and much more.
