About Swipe Out Hunger
Swipe Out Hunger is a nonprofit based in Los Angeles that partners with universities nationwide to end college student hunger. SOH’s innovative program allows college students to donate their extra meal credits to support food insecure peers on campus.
The organization has been called a “Champion of Change” by President Obama and has scaled from a grassroots group of friends at UCLA to 51 campuses in 23 states. In 2017 Swipe Out Hunger helped write and pass the trailblazing “Hunger Free Campus” bill, which led to a $7.5 million fund to alleviate hunger at public colleges in California.
Swipe Out Hunger seeks a collaborative Communications Manager to lead the organization’s communications and marketing strategy. The Communications Manager will have the support of the National Programs Coordinator and report to the CEO.
Swipe Out Hunger is positioned to effectively tell the story of student hunger, an issue that has received significant media attention, and the story of how Swipe Out Hunger works to end it. The organization completed a rebrand in Fall 2018 and has a wealth of brand guidance and strong, updated assets.
