06 Nov -Setting the table for hunger reforms
We will be gathering at the Statehouse on Nov. 29 to highlight a legislative anti-hunger package and our hunger priorities.
Our partners are invited to join us on Nov. 29 at 11 a.m. as we highlight a recently-introduced package of 13 measures aimed at curbing hunger in the Garden State and unveiling our 2019 hunger-priorities.
On Oct. 29, the state Assembly introduced 13 bills aimed at addressing hunger in New Jersey. Led by Assembly Speaker Coughlin, who has made hunger a top priority, the effort promises to alleviate hunger on college campuses, connect people with food assistance, raise awareness of hunger in New Jersey, reduce food waste and provide more healthy shopping options for people living in “food deserts.’’
In September, the New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition became Hunger Free New Jersey. While our name changed, our mission remains the same. We will share with you the top hunger issues in the state and how we plan to address them. Look forward to seeing you on Nov. 29!
