IHN partners with AmeriCorps and receives support grant funds. AmeriCorps VISTA members build capacity within the Indianapolis hunger relief system and work to alleviate poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a living allowance, end-of-service stipend or education award, and other benefits.  Learn more about the AmeriCorps program.



AmeriCorps VISTA members are housed at Indy Hunger Network as well as at partner sites  and work on capacity building projects. Examples include: piloting cooking and nutrition classes, increasing access to SNAP and WIC, grant writing, conducting outreach activities in the community, creating marketing plans for food access programs, and organizing collaboration opportunities for pantries.
