Volunteer opportunity description

The 2021 Serve-A-Thon focuses on a series of virtual workshops addressing the intersectionality of food justice followed by a virtual service activity with a non-profit partner organization.Each virtual workshop includes a dialogue with an anti-hunger organization on the intersections of food security and hunger with social issues such as environmental justice, racial justice, urban development, and public health. Volunteers will then participate in a 1-hour virtual service project to support the fight to end domestic hunger.
