CHR is a program of Cornell's Public Service Center that works throughout the year to achieve three primary objectives:
1. Works with partnering organizations to learn more about the level of hunger in the community and the organizations we can work with that offer the best outlet for making an impact on the community.
2. Plan and organize a hunger relief effort that is relevant to current needs in the local community and Tompkins County.
3. Engage the Cornell community on issues of hunger and food insecurity in the Tompkins community and beyond, through the organization of virtual events.
