Government policies and programs are critical to ending hunger—but they don’t always make the headlines when political agendas are being discussed. How can we make sure that hunger is on the agenda? By speaking up, early and often, about the urgency of ending food insecurity, and making sure our government leaders understand how public and private, charitable programs work together to help people in need.
The Alabama Food Bank Association asks you to join us in speaking out against hunger and speaking up for proven, effective policy solutions. Government officials need to hear from you in order to keep ending hunger a priority.
BECOME AN ANTI-HUNGER ADVOCATE
Effective advocacy begins with knowing which person, or unit of government has responsibility for the specific policy or program that you want to affect. When it comes to hunger, every level of government has a role to play. At the Alabama Food Bank Association, we advocate for specific, hunger-focused policy priorities and we encourage civic engagement among our partner agencies, clients and supporters. As the Food Bank builds a stronger community free of hunger, we need you to help us get there.
Join our advocacy alert email list to be notified when legislators are about to make an important decision that will impact hunger in your community. We do not send you tons of email through this action alert list. Our focus is making it easy for you to contact your legislators about hunger at the moments when that communication can make the biggest difference.
