Member Duties: The VISTA member is placed at the Athens Community Council

on Aging (ACCA) in Athens, GA and works with various partners to build capacity

for the Senior Hunger Initiatives' efforts. Specifically, the VISTA will be a

central communicator between community partners and the ACCA in order to expand

meal distribution to better meet the needs of current clients and to reach more

under-served seniors in the area. The VISTA will help secure resources by

raising awareness of senior hunger in the Athens area, and by recruiting

volunteers. The VISTA will also help strengthen existing beyond-the-meal

initiatives including the Lunch Buddy program and the Community Garden, both of

which target two of the root causes of senior hunger: lack of access to fresh,

healthy food, and social isolation. From the host site: Potential member must

be vaccinated for COVID-19 and will need a vehicle.
