Hungry For Wins aims to increase school meal participation by utilizing rising seniors to ensure that all students are taking full advantage of meal programs, reducing stigma, and changing attitudes about school food. Our objective is to have the Hungry for Wins Champions promote healthy eating habits, learn about nutrition, and customize the program to their school community. Hunger Impact Partners will provide schools with all of the necessary resources students will need to succeed, but we encourage personalization of resources to fit the need of each school. Additionally, each student will receive a scholarship in the amount of $2000 designated for post-secondary education and a reimbursement of expenses not to exceed $500 to schools. 


Two students will be identified by a school's site liaison to serve as Champions for the academic year. These Champions will collaborate with one another and will work under the guidance of the school's site liaison.
