Anti-Hunger Corps-Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative
 
 
 
Hunger Free America (HFA), in conjunction with Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative, 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; more low-income children to obtain free school breakfasts and summer meals; effective nonprofit groups fighting hunger and poverty to raise more money and recruit and manage more volunteers, particularly high-impact and skilled volunteers.
