#HungerFighters is a group of first year students committed to learning more about the causes and consequences of food insecurity through the combination of direct service and educational opportunities. #HFs participate in a year-long educational development program consisting of speakers, documentary screenings, and topical discussions. In order to ground these experiences students also commit to working with W&L Campus Kitchen on at least one regular shift each week. This combination of direct service and education forms a complementary relationship in which each component informs the other.
This cohort of committed first year students also participate in group volunteering and social activities, developing relationships that extend beyond the walls of Campus Kitchen.
While prospective students who have applied to W&L may apply to the Bonner Program, only those students who have been admitted to the University will be considered. Applications for the program are accepted on a rolling basis from the beginning of February
