For Alums

Our alums are the next generation of leaders who will build a hunger-free world and are proven resources for effective solutions to end hunger. Fully three quarters of alums go on to work for the social good throughout their careers. Below are some of the ways that we build engagement alums from the Emerson and Leland Hunger Fellows and the Zero Hunger Internship

Our Alum Council

The Congressional Hunger Center Alum Council supports the Hunger Center's mission to develop, inspire, and connect leaders in the movement to end hunger, and to advocate for public policies that create a food-secure world. The Council does this by fostering a community of engaged alums who support the professional development of current fellows and other alums, and who remain active leaders in the movement for a food-secure world.

The Alum Council accepts applications for new members on an annual basis. If you are interested in being part of the Alum Council, share your information below. A council member will be in touch with more details.

Hunger Center Hub

Launched in Spring 2020, the Hunger Center Hub is the online home of the Hunger Center alum community. Membership is open to Emerson, Leland, and Zero Hunger Intern alums. Create an account or login here.


By the time their fellowship is concluded, Hunger Fellows are planning their next steps toward using their leadership capabilities and experience in fighting hunger and poverty. For many, this next step may be studying for an advanced degree. 

We have established partnerships with leading schools of public policy to offer current and former Hunger Fellows reduced tuition for their studies at:
