Hunger Solutions seeks AmeriCorps VISTAs

VISTA_logoThe national Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps Program (AHOC) is one of the largest anti-hunger AmeriCorps VISTA projects in the country. Its main focus is to fight hunger and improve nutrition by breaking down barriers to accessing SNAP and expanding economic opportunity and ensuring healthy futures for all Americans.

Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps members increase the capacity of anti-hunger community organizations to help meet the needs of low-income community members, particularly seniors, working families, and non-English speaking populations.

AHOC has been a project of Hunger Free America in partnership with anti-hunger organizations across the county since 2010.
