The mission of most anti-hunger organizations is to fulfill President Obama’s initiative to end childhood hunger by 2015. To achieve this notable goal will require the active involvement of many diverse groups that have unique and, in some cases, broader missions than ending hunger. With new or unexpected allies, forming alliances calls for building on shared objectives while finding ways to work through differing goals and perspectives. The purpose of this paper is to identify the major actors in the education community, nutrition/health organizations, unions, private sector food companies, and trade associations and illustrate how they can play an effective role in ending hunger, while still pursuing their own missions. Are there cross-sector alliances between antihunger groups and these allied organizations that can be created and sustained that will address the goals of these groups, while aiding the effort to meet the goal of ending childhood hunger by 2015?
