Hunger Action Day 2016
Each May hundreds of anti-hunger advocates from across the state meet in Sacramento to educate their legislators about hunger and encourage their sup- port for anti-hunger legislation. This year advocates from your community will be at the capitol on Wednesday, May 25, 2016. With more than 3.8 million California adults struggling with food insecurity it’s important we speak out.
