Advocate for Hunger Relief!

When most people think of hunger relief efforts, they think of serving in a soup kitchen, making a corporate or individual donation, or organizing a food drive. Yes, all these activities are critical in the fight against hunger. But advocating for Public policy is the second prong of hunger relief efforts, and its role is equally important.

Federal nutrition programs such as Food Stamps, National School Lunch Program, and WIC (Women, Infants and Children) were established by Congress and supported by efforts from hunger advocates. Without these broad-scale national programs, hunger-relief organizations would not be able to meet the needs of the many hungry people in their communities.

We need caring citizens like you to join us and help fight for these important programs. The best way to get started as a Hunger Advocate is to join our online advocate community. Become a Hunger Fighter by signing up for our e-news mailing list. We will send you public policy updates and action alerts as needed.

See current advocacy campaigns below for opportunities to speak up for the hungry in Contra Costa and Solano counties.
