Advocacy

"No social advance rolls in on the wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of dedicated individuals."
— Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Ending hunger in Alaska will take more than food — it will take the work of dedicated and caring citizens. Anyone can be an anti-hunger advocate: all it takes is a willingness to speak up on behalf of children, women and men who are hungry or at risk of hunger. Advocacy may be writing a letter to an elected official, helping a low-income family navigate the public benefit system, or contributing an op-ed to a local newspaper.

Food Bank of Alaska's anti-hunger advocacy network focuses on public policy to end hunger by improving access to federal nutrition programs. If you would like to join the fight against hunger, contact Cara Durr, Senior Manager of Public Engagement at (907) 222-3113 or cdurr@foodbankofalaska.org.
