Sodexo Foundation and Youth Service America Invite Applications for Youth-Led Children’s Hunger Volunteer Projects
Deadline: September 16, 2011

With support from the Sodexo Foundation, Youth Service America has announced that it will award twenty-five Sodexo Youth Grants of $500 to support youth-led service projects in the U.S. that address the issue of childhood hunger during National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week (November 13-20, 2011).

The grant program seeks to fund projects that engage a student’s peers, friends, families, neighbors, Sodexo employees, and other community members in creative, youth-inspired solutions to ending childhood hunger in their community. A significant part of the volunteer project must take place during National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week.

Applicants must be between the ages of 5 and 25 years and must live in the U.S.
