We are a grassroots network of everyday people
using their unique talents to take one action in one week of the year to
help end hunger.
You become "1 of 52" others in
your community taking similar action.
This ongoing method of organizing links your
local action to others across the country creating greater Strength-in-Numbers
52 weeks a year!
Participation is VERY simple:
- YOU decide which actions you'll take - use your special
talent to make a difference in just one week of the year.*
- 100% of all proceeds or actions you generate go directly
to the hunger agency of YOUR choice.
Participation is very simple - however, your commitment
- Since we ask for a minimum of one action in one week
of the year annually, joining as a '1 of 52' member is a career or lifelong
commitment. (We also ask if for any reason you decide you can no longer
participate - and if possible - that you help us pass your week along to
someone else. This enables our network to self perpetuate.)
Note: If are already taking action annually to help end
hunger, and would like to unite your actions with other like-thinkers across
the country, you can instantly join based on your current actions.
If at this point, you've already decided to become '1
of 52' in your community, go directly to our Sign

The '1 of 52' Hunger Network invites you to join us in
a simple, grassroots "strength-in-numbers" network to help end
*It cost nothing to join as a '1 of 52' Member. Adding
your name and actions to our network allows you - as an individual - to
have a major impact on ending hunger. Do you sing, dance, act, sculpt, paint,
throw a great party or bake a mean oatmeal cookie?!? Everybody has some
unique talent, and as a '1 of 52' member, you can use yours to help end
We are uniting mass grassroots support to maximize existing
hunger organizations through a simple plan that matches your actions to
one week of the year in your community.
We're networking people from all walks of life who agree
to take a minimum of one action in one week annually. YOU decide what actions
to take - and who it will benefit. 100% of your action / donation goes directly
to the hunger organization of your choice. The purpose of this simple method
of organizing is to bring mass support to existing solutions of ending hunger.
Current hunger organizations, such as Feeding
America and their affiliate National
Anti-Hunger Organization's (NAHO) Blue Print to End Hunger, already
know all the short and long term solutions to end hunger. What they don't
have, and are seeking, is the political will of the people to rally their
cause. In a letter released with the Blueprint to End Hunger, the NAHO has
issued "a call to action to every segment of our society to mobilize
and work to make the vision of a Hunger-free America a reality".
We are answering that call to action with our ability
to rally and unite mass, grassroots action. Our plan, is to help make their
We are doing this through our simple '1 of 52' Hunger
Network method of organization that unites a minimum of 52 members in each
state, each member representing one week of the year, who take a minimum
of one action annually. That
is what we ask of you: To take a minimum of one action in one week of
the year to help end hunger (See 'Please
Join Us / How to Participate' page).
Through this simple method of mass networking and organizing,
we are building consistent, ongoing support from "every segment
of our society to mobilize and work to make the (NAHO) vision of
a Hunger-free America a reality."
Note: We are organizing on two levels:
First, if you are already taking annual action to help
end hunger, please consider adding your name and actions to our '1 of 52'
Hunger Network to create greater "Strength-in-Numbers."
Secondly, we are organizing these actions within a working
plan to inspire others to get on-board. Sometimes, all "one" is
looking for is a solid plan of action to rally behind - here's one anyone
and everyone can get behind.
Everyone is welcome to use their own special
talents to join us in this movement to help end hunger.
