The Hunger Project’s 2018 Annual Fall Gala – Take A Stand


Every autumn, The Hunger Project, a strategic, international, non-profit organization committed to a world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy, fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity, hosts a fall gala and corresponding side-events.


During the last 40 years, The Hunger Project has stood behind a global commitment to end hunger, as well as pioneered strategic programs to empower women, men and entire communities across Africa, South Asia and Latin America. The organization has also striven to transform the deeply entrenched gender discrimination that gives rise to hunger, and worked to scale-up our strategies with the support of a cutting edge monitoring and evaluation system. These efforts have allowed us to champion our commitment to end world hunger by 2030.


This year’s events will take place the weekend of October 19th to 21st at both Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers and the W Union Square Hotel. At our main evening gala — Take A Stand  nearly 500 people from various countries will come together to celebrate this journey highlighting critical issues surrounding chronic hunger and global poverty.


We are looking for enthusiastic, committed individuals who would like to be a part of these extraordinary events. Volunteer opportunities include: venue décor, greeting and directing guests, registration, preparing materials, entertainment and speaker support, collecting pledges, and a variety of other crucial event elements. With a Global Office staff of less than 20 people, The Hunger Project relies on top-notch volunteers to create successful events year after year.  


Volunteers will be needed for a variety of shifts from 3pm-midnight on Friday, October 19th, 9am-midnight on Saturday, October 20th, and 9am-3pm on Sunday, October 21st. Assignments will be based on the volunteer’s availability and skills with most shifts lasting 4 to 5 hours.


All volunteers are required to attend one of three one-hour orientation meetings in September and October (dates to be determined based on availability) held at The Hunger Project’s Global Office, 110 W 30th St, 6th Fl., New York – located between 6th and 7th Ave.
