Announcing the 2024 Zero Hunger Interns

Zero Hunger

The Hunger Center is delighted to announce the members of the 7th Class of Zero Hunger Interns. These developing leaders will spend 10 weeks over the summer expanding the impact of anti-hunger organizations in Washington, D.C.

“We’re so excited to welcome our seventh cohort of summer interns to Washington, and to have them provide valuable added capacity for organizations tackling food insecurity and its root causes in the U.S. and globally,” said Internships and Recruitment Coordinator Emily Irsik. “As an alum of the Zero Hunger Internship myself, I’m looking forward to working with the incoming cohort and seeing how they apply their interests and expertise to solving the problem of hunger.”

Zero Hunger Interns receive on-the-job training and work experience through their placements with anti-hunger organizations in Washington, D.C., as well as joining a supportive professional network of fellow interns and alums. The interns also expand their knowledge of the root causes of food insecurity and effective solutions through the 2024 Zero Hunger Summer Seminars, and develop their experience as advocates before Congress through the Gen Z Food & Hunger Summit.

The Zero Hunger Internship was launched in 2018 with support from the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation to build the knowledge and leadership skills of the next generation of leaders. To date, 75 interns have completed the program and supported the work of 40 organizations.
