COVID Food Assistance Project Orientation
Hunger Free America
Join the COVID Food Assistance Project!
As a response to the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) pandemic, Hunger Free America needs your help creating the most current database of food resources and assistance in this rapidly changing environment. The crowd-sourced information will be freely available to all who might need assistance during this time and will help the national USDA Hunger Hotline provide the most current information to all those who need assistance.
***This is an entirely virtual event that requires a time commitment of 2 hours.
Volunteers will be calling food pantries and soup kitchens to verify and update existing data in our National Database. Volunteers will receive a brief orientation and training at the start of the session. Facilitators will be present on zoom throughout the event providing live support.
If you have any questions about this event please reach out to Erika Hernandez at email@example.com.

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.
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."
