Hunger Drive Clubs
Students are the key to ending hunger and Hunger Drive Clubs will give students the opportunity to get involved in the fight against hunger in their school district. The sooner students get involved in learning about hunger, helping raise awareness, and fighting to end hunger, the better chance we will have in ending hunger with our next generation.
There are many ways for students to get involved in the fight against hunger:
The SNAP Challenge encourages students to experience what life is like for the millions of
Americans living on the average SNAP allowance of about $29 a week. Taking the Challenge for a week will give students a better understanding of what hunger feels like.
Creating Healthy Eating Flyers:
Students can help other students make better food choices by creating healthy eating flyers in their schools. The flyers will give tips on healthy foods to eat, exercising, and maintaining a healthy weight.
After-School Snack Program:
Breakfast carts can be restocked with food items students can pick up on their way out of school at the end of the day. Students in Hunger Drive Clubs can help stock carts and man checkout registers.
Food Pantry Volunteering:
Hunger Drive Club members can take the lead and volunteer at their local food pantry. Stocking shelves, picking up donated goods, and delivering meals are a few ways students can make a difference.

Cornhole for Hunger Leagues
