JOIN US FOR THE 2022 UFWH SUMMIT

Each year, hundreds of students, representing UFWH activities at campuses around the world, gather to share best practices and inspiration, and honor extraordinary student leaders. The Summit has been hosted by various campuses around the world – including George Washington University in Washington DC, Guelph University in Ontario, Canada and National University of Agriculture (UNA) in Honduras. This year, the Summit will be hosted virtually by UFWH and the Hunger Solutions Institute at Auburn University.

Join UFWH and the Hunger Solutions Institute virtually as we go back to where it all started – Auburn University where UFWH was founded and where students are leading the fight to solve hunger around the globe. Welcome to the most student-focused Summit in the history of UFWH!
