The Committee of 19 at Auburn University, the student organization leading campus War on Hunger efforts since 2004, has changed its name to UFWH|Auburn, reflecting Auburn’s role as the flagship chapter of Universities Fighting World Hunger, or UFWH.

UFWH is a growing global network of college students who are raising their voices collectively in pursuit of a world free from hunger and malnutrition. Since Auburn began its War on Hunger in partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme, UFWH|Auburn has been fighting hunger and malnutrition both locally and globally through awareness-raising, fundraising and campus and community service, including Hunger Awareness Week, partnership with the Food Bank of East Alabama, active participation in the annual UFWH Summit and support and involvement in other anti-hunger related initiatives on campus including Beat Bama Food Drive, Campus Kitchens Project and the Campus Food Security initiative.

Because all academic disciplines have something to contribute to ending hunger and malnutrition, UFWH|Auburn is composed of one representative from all schools and colleges and major student groups on campus, as well as facilitators and members-at-large who help to carry out the group’s mission. Since school and college representatives are tasked with leading subcommittees within their own units, everyone on campus has an opportunity to contribute.

UFWH|Auburn is accepting applications for representative and facilitator positions through March 2 for the 2018-19 academic year. The application can be found on the AU Involve website. Completed applications can be sent to or or dropped off at 210 Spidle Hall.
