Since 2006, Nourish Chapters have raised more than $296,000 through Ventures to impact global poverty.
What are ventures? Ventures are on-campus businesses run by Nourish Chapters in order to raise awareness, build chapter membership, and earn money for international projects. Led by student volunteers, ventures allow college students in the United States to do something tangible from their campus to eradicate poverty.
We seek to invest in social enterprise.
Since 2006, Nourish Chapters have raised over a quarter million dollars in profits through on-campus Ventures. The most common social enterprise that students run during the school year is called Hunger Lunch, a simple meal of rice, beans and cornbread sold at a high traffic area on campus. Ventures vary across campuses, but successful Ventures include Sidewalk Symphonies, Pancakes for Poverty meals, thrift sales and Hold’em for Hunger poker tournament.
