“If you desire peace, cultivate justice, but at the same time cultivate the fields to produce more bread; otherwise there will be no peace.” – Norman Borlaug
CHC is invested in developing a movement of anti-hunger leaders who are creating the political will necessary to end hunger. What is a leader? CHC believes that the anti-hunger movement must have a community of leaders that fill a variety of leadership roles. CHC leaders—creative, flexible, inspiring and courageous—mobilize their values to foster the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to create a just, food secure world. CHC leaders collaborate in the shared responsibility of creating a progressive anti-hunger movement, ensuring the right to nutritious, affordable and culturally appropriate food for all people.
