Zero Hunger Academy
We can end hunger. To do so, we must address gaps in understanding and action. You don't have to be a subject matter expert or a full-time advocate to be part of the movement to end hunger—all you need is the passion to make a difference. With Zero Hunger Academy, we'll show you how to get started.
Learning Into Action
Zero Hunger Academy is the Hunger Center's online hub for advocacy and education
With Zero Hunger Academy, we're fulfilling our mission of developing leaders by putting the tools of effective advocacy and knowledge of hunger and its root causes into your hands. Drawing on our decades of experience, we've developed these resources to help anyone develop the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to become effective agents for change.
I have been working in fighting for hunger the last six years, and participating in the End Hunger in 30 challenge truly helped me to learn more than I ever knew before. It was great to also get the perspective from others and share with others from everywhere.Lekisha P., Participant, End Hunger in Challenge, April 2020
From self-paced courses to 30-day challenges, seminars, videos, and other multimedia resources, we've drawn together the makings of a master class in anti-hunger advocacy.
You can't solve hunger if you don't understand the problem. We've curated a collection of resources to show the scope and root causes of hunger; the people who are most affected by hunger, and why; and the most efficient methods for ending hunger once and for all.
Being an effective advocate means developing your list of skills. From connecting with your elected officials to leveraging your personal network, you'll discover some of the ways to use your voice to raise awareness and promote proven solutions.
Our online learning opportunities will put you in contact with other dedicated advocates like you, ready to work together to end hunger. Join our network to learn how you can make a difference in your community and around the world.
Whether you have three months or three minutes, there's a way for you to expand your knowledge and advocacy skills with Zero Hunger Academy. Check out our resources below:
