Carolina Hunger Education and Activism Project
The Carolina Hunger Education and Activism Project (C.H.E.A.P.) is committed to combating both local and global hunger by engaging students in education, activism and awareness.
What We Do:
C.H.E.A.P gives students the opportunity to learn about the many faces of hunger through campus and community events and works to expose others to the necessity and affordability of ending world hunger within our lifetime. As a large part of these efforts, every year we package meals that are distributed in areas of need throughout the globe with our international partner organization, Stop Hunger Now. We also organize hunger-focused skills trainings for participants in the Buckley Public Service Scholars Program. Ultimately, we hope to create a sustainable and thriving community of hunger activists at UNC.
