One in six children in America are at risk of hunger. This is a problem that can be solved, and kids are leading the way! YSA and Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation are looking for 125 of the best ideas from young people about how they can help end childhood hunger in their communities.
$400 grants are available for youth leaders ages 5-25 and $1,000 grants are available to schools and organizations across the U.S. to turn their ideas into action and make an impact on the issue of childhood hunger on Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) – April 20-22, 2018 – and beyond. $400 Summer 2018 Sustainability Grants will also be awarded to up to 25 youth grantees to sustain and continue their GYSD projects.
New this year:
- Public, private, and charter schools (K-12, community colleges, and universities) and community organizations located in the United States are eligible to apply for grants of up to $1,000.
- We are especially interested in project ideas that address long-term solutions to childhood hunger.
