Friday, February 22 is Hunger Action Day 2013.
During each legislative session, the Anti-Hunger & Nutrition Coalition hosts a 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 together 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.Learn about the Coalition’s priorities for the 2013 legislative session here.
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” tab here.
If you can’t come to Olympia in person, you can participate in our online lobby day! Click here to join an online petition to lawmakers asking them to ensure Washington families don’t go hungry in these tough times.
