The Hunger Solutions Institute
Connecting People and Ideas that Work
Auburn University has waged a decade-long war on hunger on the local, national and international fronts – from educating, motivating and activating students through Universities Fighting World Hunger activities on hundreds of campuses through the partnership-building and information-sharing activities of the Hunger Solutions Institute.
The Institute not only supports UFWH as one of its flagship projects, but also leverages that network of nearly 300 universities to ensure that the knowledge, research, innovations and experts within academia have can contribute to the multi-sector partnerships addressing domestic and global hunger and malnutrition. End Child Hunger in Alabama (ECHA) is an initiative where HSI has convened leaders from all sectors to build a sustainable and scalable public-private action agenda.
Thus, the movement began. Today the UFWH network consists of approximately 300 colleges and universities from around the world committed to making the eradication of hunger a core value of their institutions.
Universities Fighting World Hunger (UFWH) represents a campus best practice in international programming and sustainable human development. It creates a learning environment where intellectual discovery and social responsibility converge in pursuit of a sustainable world – a world that protects our natural environment and enhances human health and well-being for present and future generations
