Hunger Free America

This is a special event for Spanish-speaking volunteers to conduct outreach to NYC communities.

Volunteer with HFA to help connect families to food assistance! HUNGER FREE AMERICA is a nonpartisan, national nonprofit group working to enact the policies and programs needed to end domestic hunger and ensure that all Americans have sufficient access to nutritious food. During the COVID-19 pandemic, countless families have faced unprecedented circumstances that have caused financial strain and limited access to basic amenities like food and shelter. The HFA phone banking initiative serves to connect families with information and resources to support them during these times.

***This is an entirely virtual event that requires a time commitment of 2 hours.

Volunteer Duties

  • Provide vital food resources and information over the phone.
  • Keep track of calls made. A list will be provided to volunteers with the names and contact information of individuals to reach out to.
  • Record contact information for callers who would like information to be emailed or texted to them. A basic overview of the programs and resources will be reviewed at the start of the event. A script for calling and emailing will be provided.

To ensure volunteer privacy, it is recommended that volunteers set up a free Google Voice account prior to the event (https://voice.google.com/u/0/signup).

Mission Statement

HUNGER FREE AMERICA is a national nonprofit group building a nonpartisan, grassroots membership movement to enact the policies and programs needed to end domestic hunger and ensure that all Americans have sufficient access to nutritious food.

Description

HUNGER FREE AMERICA (formerly known as the New York City Coalition Against Hunger) is a national nonprofit group building a nonpartisan, grass-roots membership movement to enact the policies and programs needed to end domestic hunger and ensure that all Americans have sufficient access to nutritious food.

Our long-term goal is not just to ameliorate the problem, but also to build the people’s movement necessary to enact the economic and public policies needed to end hunger entirely. Given that hunger drains our economy and tears at our moral and civic fabric, we know that eliminating it will boost the nation both economically and spiritually. Towards that end, we’ve adopted the motto: "Ending hunger lifts us all."
