Zero Hunger Internship

The Zero Hunger Internship immerses college students and recent graduates in anti-hunger policy work in Washington, D.C. In this 10-week paid internship program, participants gain work experience at global and domestic anti-hunger organizations as they develop professional skills and grow as leaders. When summer is over, they return home as powerful advocates for effective anti-hunger programs and policies.

The most important thing I learned about anti-hunger policy is how central it is to the lives of so many people in America. I want to continue to learn about more ways to incorporate innovative policy solutions to address the needs of special populations in the U.S. Nesreen Abu Khalaf, Summer 2018 Zero Hunger Intern

I grew up in D.C. I have seen homeless people displaced but watched from the sidelines. I have decided that I am tired of being on the sidelines…I will find ways that I, as an individual, can fight to end hunger by 2030.
