Fight Hunger

Help the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) group defeat the cycle of hunger.

SIFE is an international non-profit organization in which 39 countries are involved (577 universities and colleges in the United States).

SIFE students apply business concepts to develop community outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. Let's take the action to defeat the cycle of hunger!

NVCC SIFE Team registered for the 2010-2011 Let's Can Hunger Challenge, co-sponsored by Campbell Soup Company and SIFE USA. Goal: SIFE team must be expended to obtain 5,000 lbs+ (2,268 kg+) imperishable cans.

Purpose: 1. Raise hunger awareness; 2. Translate awareness to action in the form of urgent hunger relief; 3. Empower those in need to defeat the cycle of hunger

How to participate: Drop off cans and other non-perishable items in our “Can the Hunger” box in your division’s reception area or at the Student Activities Office (AA Room 134). The SIFE Team’s “Can the Hunger” food drive will run through early April.
