Advocate For Change
At The Food Bank, we lead the community in advocating for change, bringing issues of hunger to the forefront and empowering people to work towards developing solutions. As a hunger advocate, you can communicate with your legislator about local hunger issues and urge them to provide the resources needed to help end hunger. By lending your voice, you can bring positive change.

Share Your Story
Your personal story can serve as a powerful tool in putting a face to a solvable problem. You can help make a difference in the community by letting us know what impact food insecurity has had on your life, or on the lives of those you know. We will share these stories with our state legislators as we advocate for increased funding throughout the year.
