Hunger Action Day 2015

Hunger Action Day 2015 was a huge success! Well over 150 advocates turned out and covered the capitol in orange, talking with almost 90 legislators about the importance of the AHNC legislative priorities – thanks to all who came and all who contacted their lawmakers.

A special thanks to Senator Bob Hasegawa, who gave a much-appreciated impromptu talk 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 next year!
