On this trip, students will learn about and experience firsthand the policies, organizations, and programs affecting hungry individuals in America, and we get to explore how you can practically serve and advocate on behalf of those Jesus called "the least of these" (Matthew 24:25). Faculty and students will explore the scope, causes and impact of hunger in America. Students learn about different types of interventions used to fight hunger such as: emergency food assistance, federal nutrition programs and advocacy. Along the way we, there will be unique opportunities to put these interventions into practice by volunteering and serving at organizations such as DC Central Kitchen, Maryland Breakfast in the Classroom, the United States Department of Agriculture, Capital Area Food Bank, Bread for the World and more!
