Join Our Steering Committee

If you are passionate about food as a human right and like the idea of a community-based organization, which works with those living the experience of hunger and those who make decisions affecting their lives, you may thrive on the End Hunger Durham Steering Committee. The SC guides priorities, plans events, helps fundraise, and does much of the program work. Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm at 721 Foster St. or during the COVID era, on Zoom.

Please contact Betsy Crites at (919) 381-5969 if you can help with any of these areas.

End Hunger Durham provides connections to navigators and assistance for enrollment in programs that can assist them with financial emergencies, housing, healthcare, food, and employment, and more.
