Anti-Hunger Corps at Cuba Cultural Center
 
 
 
Hunger Free America (HFA), in conjunction with Cuba Cultural Center, is in its first year of the Anti-Hunger Corps (AHC), a 21 member AmeriCorps VISTA program in California and New York. This program engages VISTA members and partnering organizations in moving families beyond the soup kitchen by breaking down barriers and providing improved access to healthful, nutritious foods. The AHC VISTA program aims to address hunger, poverty, and build the capacity of the agencies that address these issues. Members will assist unemployed and under-employed people obtain job training, job placement, and financial literacy services; improve access to food from government and nonprofit sources for targeted populations in particular and food insecure people in general; enable residents of food deserts to access healthier foods through farmers markets and community gardens; grow the number of low-income children able to obtain free school breakfasts and summer meals; and recruit and manage more volunteers, particularly high-impact, skilled volunteers.

Member Duties : Cuba Cultural Center is seeking three members to assist with programming aimed at aiding low-income people suffering from hunger. One member will develop partnerships with local grocers, wholesalers, and other food providers to increase and diversify Cuba Cultural Center's food supply base. This member will also increase resources available to the Center for the small BackPack weekend feeding program. Another member will collect information about the availability of food security programming in the Western Southern Tier area. This info will be used in the GotFood? app, a national database of food resources. The final member will recruit participants for leadership development in the Speakers' Bureau program, teaching clients how to advocate for themselves.
