Zero Hunger Academy

We can end hunger. To do so, we must address gaps in understanding and action. You don't have to be a subject matter expert or a full-time advocate to be part of the movement to end hunger—all you need is the passion to make a difference. With Zero Hunger Academy, we'll show you how to get started.

Learning Into Action


Zero Hunger Academy is the Hunger Center's online hub for advocacy and education

Drawing on our decades of experience, we've developed these resources to help anyone develop the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to become effective agents for change.

I have been working in fighting for hunger the last six years, and participating in the End Hunger in 30 challenge truly helped me to learn more than I ever knew before. It was great to also get the perspective from others and share with others from everywhere. Lekisha P., Participant, End Hunger in Challenge, April 2020
