Youth in Action
Are you a young person interested in making a difference in the world?
Join The Hunger Project in its mission of ending hunger and poverty, while building your leadership skills.
End world hunger one grilled cheese at a time. The Hunger Project’s youth program, FeelGood, is a movement of passionate, committed university students turning their college experience into a time of global action. They develop their business, leadership and teamwork skills while running a successful social enterprise—typically a grilled cheese deli— to raise money and build public support for ending hunger and poverty.
Learn more about the program and how you can start a chapter here!
Hold a bake sale/educational event at your school or in your community to benefit The Hunger Project. Each item that is sold could have a label attached to it with some important statistics and facts about world hunger. Get the facts in our knowledge center.
Hold a fundraising event through your school, camp, youth group, religious group, or sorority or fraternity. Events could include yard sales, read-a-thons, benefit concerts and more!
- The women of Alpha Chi Omega sorority in Quinnipiac University held a fashion show and donated the proceeds to The Hunger Project. Staci Sherman (right), sophomore, said: “We thought that of all the other organizations out there, we loved the idea of ending world hunger and empowering women and their families to stay healthy every day.”
- Seventh and eight grade students at East Palo Alto Middle School in California had a special philanthropy project to research and choose ten non-profits focused on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to support. The Hunger Project received one of the highest amounts of money: $1,700!
