Anti-Hunger Corps-Food Access & Data Management VISTA
 
 
 
Hunger Free America (HFA), in conjunction with some of the nation’s most effective anti-hunger and poverty organizations, 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.

Member Duties : The Food Access & Data Management VISTA will work to reduce food insecurity by increasing access to both government and non-government nutrition benefits and to healthier foods at farmers’ markets. The member will help implement a new database that integrates data on food resources currently maintained in separate silos. Member will also create user manuals and train staff to utilize the new technology. Additionally, the member will collaborate with the creators of the GotFood? app, a database of food resources now available in about 25% of the country. The member will work with national partners and the GotFood? team to expand areas covered and keep listings up-to-date. The member will also utilize the new database to identify ways to streamline the annual updates to our Guides to Food & Assistance, which each year help hundreds of NYC organizations get information on food resources to those they serve.
