Food is a basic human right.

Get Involved as an Advocate

We believe every child, adult and senior should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and live vibrant, productive lives. Our community, and our economy, must be inclusive of all.

Centered on these beliefs, our team works year-round with every level of government to end poverty and inequity. Whether we’re giving testimony at state budget hearings or hosting educational events to inspire action, we rely on a powerful group of community advocates and volunteers to amplify all of our voices.

The movement is stronger with you in it. Join us.
