The NC Hunger Corps is an AmeriCorps VISTA project sponsored by North Carolina Campus Compact. North Carolina Campus Compact is a collaborative network of colleges and universities committed to educating students for civic and social responsibility, partnering with communities for positive change, and strengthening democracy. The NC Campus Compact state office fosters connections between campuses, shares best practice information and resources, recognizes outstanding work, and champions civic and community engagement in higher education. The NC Hunger Corps VISTA will serve with a college or community-based organization to support on-campus or off-campus hunger relief programs that target low-income or disadvantaged college students and staff. These programs may include campus or community gardens, food recovery efforts modeled on the Campus Kitchen Project or the Food Recovery Network, food pantries, and fresh produce distribution (mobile markets). Hunger Corps members may also work to raise awareness about nutrition and healthy eating. Corps members should have a demonstrated passion for hunger relief work, experience working or volunteering with low-income children and families, as well as strong written, oral, and interpersonal communication skills. Proven leadership, project management abilities, and a strong interest & experience in college/university community service programs are also essential skills for this position.
