Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, which for many people in the United States means good food, family, and football. This is also the time of year where we pay attention to people in our community struggling with hunger. Want to get involved? On Idealist, there are thousands of organizations working to end hunger, and they’re always looking for help!


  • The big city isn’t for everyone, and if that’s the case for you head up to Vermont and try applying to the AmeriCorps VISTA post with Hunger Free Vermont. Through public education and advocacy they promote nutrition and prevent hunger throughout the Green Mountain State.

Internships and Volunteer Opportunities

If you’re not looking for full-time work, Idealist still has you covered.

  • Finally, if you’d like to work for a food pantry that’s doing things a little bit differently, check out the Choice Food Program at the Klein Jewish Community Center in Philadelphia. They need volunteers to help clients operate the computer program they use to place food orders.

How are you getting involved this holiday season?

About Author

I'm a Community Manager at Idealist, and I'm originally from Connecticut. I started working at Idealist four years ago after jumping around from NYC, Alaska, Argentina, and back to NYC. I love helping people use Idealist seeing the range of nonprofits that exist in the world! I like to travel, brew beer, cook, and play hockey. I should probably live in Portland, but for now I'm in New York.
