2024 Summer Seminars Kick Off with Look at Domestic Hunger Policy

Academy, Zero Hunger

The United States of America enjoys one of the highest standards of living on Earth. Yet, food insecurity exists in every state and Congressional district in the country.1 Why is that? What are the most effective federal policies to combat hunger in the U.S.? How were these programs expanded during the pandemic’s economic turmoil, and what has happened as these temporary expansions have expired?

Join us June 12 at 11 a.m. EDT as we kick off the 2024 Zero Hunger Summer Seminars with an online discussion on food insecurity in the United States. In this session, participants will learn about:

  • Domestic policies that have the greatest impact on hunger and food security in the U.S.
  • The end of pandemic-era support services and the current state of food insecurity
  • Post-pandemic challenges to food security and potential policy solutions.
  • How anti-hunger advocates can use their voices to support policies that promote food security.

College students, summer interns, and volunteers are especially encouraged to tune in. The session includes several short articles for pre-reading, which can be accessed when you enroll in the course via our Zero Hunger Academy platform.

Our speakers include:

The Seminars are part of Zero Hunger Academy, the Hunger Center’s online learning hub.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation for their generous support of the Zero Hunger Summer Seminars.
