Community Hunger Fighters

The Community Hunger Fighters Programme is an action, reflection education model wherein communities are empowered to move towards nutrition security through continuous capacity building of representatives, selected by the community itself. So far we have trained more than 100 CHFs across the states of Odisha and Maharashtra. The participatory action research methods sought to facilitate a process of action and reflection by selected community representatives, both men and women, to help them identify, prioritize and take action, at least in areas under their control, to augment food and nutrition security at the household level as CHF’s. There are three key stages in the capacity development; (i) generating awareness on food and nutrition security through a variety of means; (ii) addressing undernutrition by establishing nutritional garden, and (iii) getting entitlements from the government that address the issues like food, income, water and sanitation, and shelter.
