Volunteer with the United Nations World Food Program - Massachusetts!


Volunteer with the United Nations World Food Program - Massachusetts! Despite the fact that, for the last 60 years, the world has produced enough food to feed every single person on the planet, more than one billion people around the world suffer from chronic hunger. More than 60% of the world’s hungry are women. Every six seconds a child dies because of hunger and related causes. Hunger is unnecessary and unacceptable. Join us in the movement to end global hunger. Friends of the World Food Program, the Washington DC-based, nonprofit organization which represents the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) in the USA, is seeking a handful of entrepreneurial, self-starting leaders with follow-through to work with us in establishing WFP Committees in their community. There are currently more than 25 WFP Committees around the country, working to end global hunger through fundraising, advocacy and awareness. WFP Committee leaders not only work local to raise awareness about the issue of global hunger in their community, but also enjoy access to a fast-growing, national network of equally passionate volunteer leaders looking to change the world. WFP Committee leaders will be trained and supported by our state and national affiliates, in order to achieve success in their community. In addition, WFP Committee leaders are provided exclusive opportunities such as: · Two free tickets to attend Friends of WFP’s Annual Awards Ceremony · Opportunities to visit WFP programs in developing countries around the world, · Access to exclusive calls and interviews with WFP leaders, · Invitations to participate in the Summit on Global Hunger in Washington DC …and so much more! Interested in learning more? Review our volunteer job description, and contact Friends of WFP’s Outreach Department for more details at outreach@friendsofwfp.org. Please indicate "WFP Committee of (your town)” in the subject line. Join us in the movement to end global hunger!
