The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s Advocacy Department works year-round on public policies that affect our neighbors who struggle with hunger.
We believe the charitable food system is a supplement to, not a replacement for, more viable and vital long-term solutions. Solutions like higher wages, a strong federal anti-hunger safety net and ultimately, a healthy economy for all working individuals.
The challenges are complex and require collaboration among both private and public entities to expand the economic opportunities for America’s working poor. Together, government, employers, charities and others can address the root causes of food insecurity to ensure that every family has adequate food and nutrition.
Help us build a powerful movement. Through the concerted efforts of people like you, we can ensure that legislators get the message: helping those in need is a priority today, and addressing hunger’s root causes is vital to eliminating hunger tomorrow.
