peers into the work they do and has the peers help each other out.”

“I was able to have a place where I could come and say ‘I’m struggling…and I want to empower other people and I want to tell my story.’ I don’t think I would be here if it wasn’t for Beyond Hunger.”

“Learning to love yourself just the way you are is a message that Beyond Hunger brings to life in a powerful and thoughtful way. The organization’s use of peer educators allows for the perfect forum for students to get valuable information that they can use for the rest of their lives. Beyond Hunger has been coming to my classes for 5 years. Their message is strong and powerful; be your best person, instead of judging yourself or others learn to accept, and above all else, understand and value the person that you are. Grateful for the impact they have had with my students over the years.”

“Beyond Hunger has worked with Saint Mark’s School for the past 3 years presenting to our students on the topic of eating disorders and the importance of intuitive eating. We feel having experts and peer presenters

providing information and education is incredibly beneficial for our students.
