UFWH Summit information:

We are thrilled to announce the 2024 UFWH Summit, held April 5-6 at the University of Arkansas.

This yearly event features the opportunity for networking and strategizing for current and prospective UFWH college student members who are passionate about ending world hunger. The summit includes opportunities to learn from other students and national experts about best practices for a hunger-free world.

Although each college and university in the network plans its own agenda, all are committed to stimulate student awareness about hunger as a critical global issue and help them find ways to make meaningful contributions regardless of background, major, or career path. At the annual summits, hundreds of student leaders from around the world gather to share best practices and experiences. You can join the movement to create a zero hunger world by 2030 if you take action now!
