New Online Tools from USDA

The US Department of Agriculture has launched a few new online tools to help individuals, corporations, community organizations, state and local governments, and non-profits in their mission to end childhood hunger in our country.  Despite the success of the nation’s nutrition assistance programs and the hard work of state and local governments and countless organizations, food insecurity persists.  In 2009, nearly one million children lived in households with very-low food security and simply did not get enough to eat.

The new online tools can be found at www.endhunger.usda.gov, including:

  • Stakeholder Guide to Ending Childhood Hunger, a guide to assist individuals and organizations in choosing value-added activities and finding resources to help end childhood hunger;
  • Become a Champion to End Hunger, an online commitment drive that encourages organizations and the public to select actions they will take to reduce childhood hunger;
  • End Hunger Volunteerism Portal, a website developed by the Corporation for National and Community Service where organizations can post volunteer opportunities and individuals can search for volunteer opportunities in their communities.
