Who We Are — Our Extraordinary Team
RESULTS staff, board of directors, and grassroots volunteers are dedicated individuals who are committed to accomplishing an end to persistent hunger and the devastating impact of poverty.
Our more than 800 grassroots volunteers are partners in ending hunger. Working in groups in more than 100 communities across the U.S., they are ordinary people from many walks of life who cause extraordinary changes in public policy through phone calls, letters, and face-to-face meetings with public officials. They are people just like you. RESULTS volunteers have jobs, families, and all the concerns of daily life, and they make a commitment to take monthly actions, with others in their community, that educate the public and their elected officials about the issues of hunger and poverty in order to make them a national and international priority. About half of the grassroots groups work on domestic issues and half work global hunger and poverty issues.
