Hunger Action Day 2016

Hunger Action Day 2016 was a huge success! Well over 130 advocates turned out and covered the capitol in orange, talking with almost 110 legislators about the importance of the AHNC legislative priorities – thanks to all who came and all who contacted their lawmakers.

A special thanks to Rep. Pat Sullivan (47th LD), longtime hunger champion and House Majority Leader, who spoke with us about the importance of the safety net and the need for advocacy to protect the services that serve Washington’s most vulnerable residents.

Thank you for your participation and for supporting critical anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs. See you at Hunger Action Day 2017!
