Volunteer and Help End Hunger

While government programs provide a nutrition safety net for millions of Americans, people are still hungry. Many of our most valuable resources in the fight against hunger lie within the individual communities where hunger is most prevalent. Providing volunteers to capable organizations will energize the fight to end hunger.

This is one reason why the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Corporation for National and Community Service have teamed up to help you find volunteer opportunities to fight hunger in your community. In addition, on Serve.gov, you can find out more about hunger in the U.S. and learn how to start your own project with toolkits.

If you are an organization interested in partnering with the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to end hunger in your community, please visit the USDA’s Partnerships & Outreach page.

Today, USDA launched a series of new online tools and volunteer initiatives to increase the number of individuals, organizations, and governments actively working to end childhood hunger.
