League Hiring Full-Time AmeriCorps VISTA Members to Help Address Food Insecurity in Community Colleges


About the Anti-Hunger Corps

The Anti-Hunger Corps VISTA program aims to reduce hunger and poverty and build the capacity of the agencies that address these issues. Members will build the capacity of the organization to help unemployed and under-employed people obtain job training, job placement, and financial literacy services; improve access to food from government and nonprofit sources for targeted populations in particular and food insecure people in general; enable residents of food deserts to access healthier foods through farmers markets and community gardens; help more low-income children to obtain free school breakfasts and summer meals; and enable nonprofit groups fighting hunger and poverty to raise more money and recruit and manage more volunteers, particularly high-impact and skilled volunteers.

Position Description

The League for Innovation in the Community College (League), in partnership with Hunger Free America, is seeking two full-time VISTA members to engage with Mesa Community College, South Mountain Community College, and Northeast Texas Community College in developing and testing innovative solutions to SNAP/WIC access for students and to systematically address food insecurity in community colleges.
