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.
