How college students use the power of a grilled cheese to change the world

Feel Good

FeelGood, a non-profit social enterprise based in San Francisco, CA has an idea: Unleash the power of college youth to help end world hunger through the simple act of making a grilled cheese sandwich. The organization empowers future leaders—college students—to create and run non-profit delis on their college campuses, where they “give away” grilled cheese sandwiches for a donation. In turn, the proceeds are wholly invested in organizations working toward the sustainable end of global hunger.

    “What we are ultimately about is transforming students into lifelong social entrepreneurs—what we call ‘changemakers’—people who are ready to respond to the world’s most pressing issues in innovative, strategic and compassionate ways,” said FeelGood’s executive director, Kristin Walter. “So, beyond earning money to alleviate hunger, we’re helping to create a new generation of socially-motivated entrepreneurs and student leaders, as well as initiating a new, more holistic dialogue about poverty, hunger and our role as global citizens.”

    To ensure the success of these student-run FeelGood delis, the organization offers business consulting, investment capital and a formalized education curriculum called the FeelGood Labs—an innovative, online and offline program where students learn about sustainable models of development, social entrepreneurship, and the implications of living in a global age.

    Active on 25 college campuses across the country, FeelGood is now recruiting new chapters for its 2014 training program. Interested students should visit www.feelgood.org/start. Application deadline is November 15, 2013.

      This is really awesome. I'd love to include this in Push for Good, our guide to crowdsourcing creative progress: good.is/push-for-good. What a creative way to talk about world hunger in that college setting.
