ABOUT NOURISH INTERNATIONAL
Nourish International is one of the Carolina Entrepreneurial Initiative’s earliest success stories. Founded at UNC as “Hunger Lunch” in 2003 by Sindhura Citineni, Nourish International received inspiration and assistance from CEI’s programs and community to develop into a nonprofit venture. It incorporated in 2006 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on eradicating poverty worldwide. Nourish now works with students on around 25 campuses in the United States. This summer, Nourish sent 65 students to work on community development projects with partners in 11 communities worldwide. In 2008, Nourish received the North Carolina Peace Prize for excellence in cross-cultural solutions and sustainable development. For more information, visit www.nourishinternational.org
