Start a Chapter.
We are a national movement of social entrepreneurs for the end of global hunger, with Chapters across the country.
Become a leader of change.
Starting a FeelGood Chapter is a great way to get involved with the mission of ending hunger, to connect with a community of like-minded young activists and to develop critical business, leadership and teamwork skills that will serve you throughout your life. As a movement of college students, we’re organized in Chapters around the country.
A FeelGood Chapter is…
Recognized student organization
On college or university campuses in the U.S. or Canada, with certain rights and privileges extended only to student groups.
A non-profit business where you develop entrepreneurial skills and invest 100% of proceeds in the The Hunger Project
Operating a food-safe certified deli offering delicious, responsibly-sourced gourmet grilled cheese in exchange for a donation
An education-focused service organization enabling our generation to take an active role in addressing a critical global issue
Community of Changemakers
Composed of empowered, audacious leaders taking action to end hunger by 2030
Every Chapter has access to…
Investment capital for our Chapter & enterprise
Real-time coaching with an experienced and knowledgeable Changemaker Ignitor
An online platform to connect with the wider FeelGood community and utilize a peer-to-peer curriculum designed to empower and mobilize you as effective changemakers
Peak Experiences for ongoing leadership and personal development
FeelGood’s kick ass brand and graphics for identity and promotions
Our proven process.
Following the steps of our proven program, your Chapter could be raising $10,000 annually for The Hunger Project, a cutting-edge organization working to end hunger by 2030. In the process you’ll not only create a lasting campus legacy that will thrive long after you graduate, you’ll also develop the skills and friendships that will empower your own journey as “a changemaker for life.”
