In 2018, our organization engaged over 430,000 volunteers around the world. This year, we’re encouraging even more volunteers, of all ages and locations on the map, to join our movement to end world hunger by 2030! Speak Up For Service Day recognizes the importance of young people to be actively involved in community service, and we see young volunteers making a difference every single day! To highlight their commitment and ongoing support of our mission, we’re sharing some of our favorite photos of our youth volunteers from around the globe below:

We recognize that our organization would not be where it is today without the help of our volunteers. Through our mission, we hope to inspire volunteers around the world to take a stand with us in the fight against hunger. Among our volunteers, young people are also continuing to push the limits by committing to meal packaging events and encouraging their peers to do the same. Today, we ask that you join our inspiring young volunteers and help us spread the word about the importance of giving back through the service of others!
