Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps SNAP Outreach VISTA
 
 
 
About the Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps The national Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps Program (AHOC), an initiative of Hunger Free America since 2010, is one of the largest anti-hunger AmeriCorps VISTA projects in the country. Its main focus is to fight hunger and improve nutrition, primarily by breaking down barriers to accessing the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) as well as by expanding economic opportunity and ensuring healthy futures for all Americans, mostly through the SNAP Employment and Training program. Members also serve to increase the capacity of anti-hunger community organizations to help meet the needs of low-income community members, particularly to seniors, working families and non-English speaking populations. About Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon believes that all Oregonians should be able to afford nourishing food. We raise awareness about hunger, connect people to nutrition programs, and advocate for systemic changes to end hunger before it begins. Partners for a Hunger Free Oregon is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
