About the Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps’ Summer Associate program:
The Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps (AHOC) is an AmeriCorps VISTA project sponsored by Hunger Free America and funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Walmart Foundation and the Pepsico Foundation. This national project operates two programs, one for a full-year and the other for just the summer, called the Summer Associate program. Both the full-year and Summer Associates work in both rural and urban areas across the country as part of a public-private partnership to improve access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps), the Summer Food Service Program, and other anti-hunger programs for Americans in need.
Baylor University’s Texas Hunger Initiative in partnership with Hunger Free America is seeking Summer Associate members to assist in the administration, implementation, access, and quality of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).

Also, AmeriCorps VISTA and Summer Associates must adhere to some restrictions on political and religious activities.
