The Summer Seminars will start on June 12, 2024 at 11 am (EST) and will conclude with presentations from our Zero Hunger Interns on July 31, 2024. Each summer, the Congressional Hunger Center brings leading experts together in a series of online seminars that cover food insecurity, poverty, and hunger, both domestically and globally. The seminars are an efficient way to train new volunteers, staff members and colleagues about the root causes of hunger, effective solutions, and advocacy. They are also perfect for summer interns and college students seeking to expand their knowledge and skills as anti-hunger advocates. All seminars are free to attend and recorded for later review. Topics of this year’s sessions include power and privilege in international development, storytelling for effective advocacy, an introduction to domestic hunger policy, and much more.

Alongside the seminars, we offer companion readings, videos, podcasts and related content. Learn along with us and earn volunteer hours. Certificates of completion are given for regular attendance at the seminars and engaging with online resources about ending food insecurity.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to develop, inspire, and connect leaders in the movement to end hunger, and to advocate for public policies that create a food-secure world.

Description

We invest in the development of emerging leaders in the movement to end hunger in the United States and around the world. We strive to engage leaders, especially leaders who have experienced hunger and poverty and leaders of color, in bridging the gap between field and policy, community and Congress, theory and practice. Our programs:
Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellowship: A one-year program combining anti-hunger work in local communities across the United States with policy-level experience in Washington, D.C.
MIckey Leland International Hunger Fellowship: A two-year program where participants learn professional and leadership skills while strengthening food and nutrition security around the world.
Zero Hunger Internship: A ten-week summer program for college students and recent graduates to develop their leadership skills and gain on-the-job experience with anti-hunger organizations across the country.
Zero Hunger Academy: Our food security and leadership development curriculum is also available as an online learning experience for individuals or networks seeking to expand their knowledge on domestic and global hunger.
