Emerson National Hunger Fellows Program

The Emerson National Hunger Fellows Program is a social justice program that trains, inspires, and sustains leaders.

Fellows gain field experience fighting hunger and poverty through placements in community based organizations across the country, andpolicy experience through placements in Washington, D.C.

The program bridges community-based efforts and national public policy, and fellows develop as effective leaders in the movement to end hunger and poverty.

The Emerson Program supports a diversity of local and national approaches toeliminate hunger, poverty and social inequality, particularly racism. We seek to craft successful and between Fellows and partner organizations mutually beneficial partnerships while developing a new generation of hunger and poverty leaders. Fellows support partner organizations with program development, research, evaluation, outreach, organizing, and advocacy projects.
