Monday, January 23 is Hunger Action Day 2017! Registration begins at 8:30am and our program begins promptly at 9:30am – see you in the Columbia Room of the Legislative Building (hint: it’s the one with the big dome)
During each legislative session, the Anti-Hunger & Nutrition Coalition hosts Hunger Action Day, a lobby day in Olympia that highlights issues facing hungry families in Washington State; and brings their stories and priorities to legislators in the positions to make change that reduces hunger.
Over the years, the Coalition has successfully brought hunger advocates down to Olympia to advocate for strategic policy and state appropriations to maximize federal nutrition programs, reinforce our community-based emergency food assistance system, and link local farmers with the needs of the hungry.
Your legislative district may have changed since last year because of re-districting. To look up your legislative district, go to the “Find Your District” button below.
