Hunger Action Day 2012

Hunger Action Day 2012 was a huge success! Well over 150 advocates turned out and covered the capitol in orange, talking with more than 80 legislators about the importance of the AHNC legislative priorities – thanks to all who came and all who contacted their lawmakers.

A special thanks to Speaker Frank Chopp, who gave a passionate talk about the importance of the safety net and the need for revenue options to protect the services that serve Washington’s most vulnerable residents.

Thank you for your participation and for supporting critical hunger relief programs.  See you next year!
