Celebrate Volunteer Week 2024 With the End Hunger Challenge

Academy, Zero Hunger

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 to celebrate the spirit of volunteerism as one of the hallmarks of American life. Whether volunteering in person or remotely, getting involved in direct service or advocating for change, Volunteer Week is when people from all over the country come together to improve the quality of life of others.

On April 22, we will launch our second annual Volunteer Week End Hunger Challenge, a comprehensive introduction to the issues surrounding food insecurity in the U.S. By signing up for the course, you’re taking the first step on your volunteer journey to end hunger. We’ll offer video content, podcasts, the latest research and infographics that cover the following topics:

  • What is Food Insecurity?
  • Who Experiences Food Insecurity?
  • What Are the Root Causes of Food Insecurity?
  • What Would It Take to End Hunger?
  • Using Your Voice

Along the way, we’ll share ideas for volunteer action, and highlight significant volunteer initiatives and success stories as inspiration for what we can achieve when we understand the problem and focus on creative solutions. We’ll also share links to help you find more volunteer opportunities in your local community. As always, after completing the Volunteer Week End Hunger Challenge, you will earn a downloadable certificate noting five hours of community service.

The End Hunger Challenge also pairs well with in-person activities you may be organizing, helping your volunteers bridge gaps in understanding around food insecurity and its root causes. If you’d like to share the challenge with your volunteers, board of directors, students, youth group, or other group, get in touch with Partnerships and Outreach Manager Liz Pearce at [email protected] for options.
