In January 2023, the Congressional Hunger Center will offer a concentrated version of the End Hunger in 30 Challenge, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Day of Service. The MLK Day of Service End Hunger Challenge will last five days and will focus on the most pertinent answers to the questions “What Are the Root Causes of Food Insecurity?” and “What Would It Take to End Hunger?”. The End Hunger Challenge is a free online curriculum designed to build awareness and increase the knowledge of advocates fighting for food security in the United States.

Participants in the MLK Day of Service End Hunger Challenge will receive a daily email for five days with links to the course, suggestions for taking action, and advocacy tips. The course highlights current research with videos and infographics focused on successful programs as well as interactive simulations focusing on the realities of SNAP budgeting and food insecurity. The End Hunger Challenge is offered free of charge and only requires an email to sign up. Organizations are invited to join as a group to boost their network’s hunger fighting potential. Organizations interested in more information should contact Liz Pearce for instructions on signing up as a group by December 15th, 2022.

Registration is open now and individuals can sign up here or use our contact form for additional information.
