The Hunger Action Corps is an AmeriCorps program that engages and cultivates social justice leaders who want to gain experience while fighting hunger. Since 2009, AmeriCorps members have supported Food Depository programs that connect food insecure individuals to vital programs with the vision of creating stronger, healthier communities. Through a combination of service, experiential learning and formal training opportunities, Hunger Action Corps members make a difference in the lives of Cook County residents while gaining valuable skills that will transform their own.
