Timeline: June 2015-August 2015

Position: End Summer Hunger Campaign Corps

Website: AmeriCorps


During the summer, 100,000 King County kids and families lose access to reliable the school meals are provided over the school year. The good news is that there is a federal program that provides free meals to kids and teens living in high poverty areas – all summer long. The bad news is that only 10-14% of area children access free summer meals. This gap is the result of various barriers experienced only during the summer, including a lack of access to meal sites, insufficient program awareness, and limited resources when schools are closed.

My Role

I served as a member of the End Summer Hunger Campaign Corps as a part of the AmeriCorps team during the summer of 2015. in this position I executed multiple roles including: acting as a Site Supervisor at multiple meal sites to distribute meals to low income children and hosting and working multiple outreach events to spread the word about the program.

Future Goals:

Although my AmeriCorps Term has ended, I wish to be able to serve again in the future and through this opportunity I have been able to learn more about other opportunities such as Dream Project and Huskies for Opportunities in Prison Education.
