Inspired by the work of The Hunger Project and its philosophy that ending hunger is not about feeding “a billion hungry mouths,” but rather about “unleashing the talents and spirits of a billion human beings able to end their own hunger”—Kristin and her friends looked for a way to get involved and contribute.
This active group of students had an idea: They would offer fellow students grilled cheese sandwiches in exchange for a donation, and invest the proceeds in organizations with a proven track record of sustainable, gender-based hunger-eradication. In less than 6 months, they raised $10,000. Not only that, they discovered that a grilled cheese sandwich had the power to start some amazing conversations about hunger…and how we can end it!
Sustaining a movement.
Today, FeelGood is national movement of social entrepreneurs for the end of global hunger, with Chapters across the country. Every year FeelGood students initiate thousands of conversations and raise tens of thousands of dollars, all for the most critical global issue of our time.
