At Rise Against Hunger, we believe that our goal of ending hunger by 2030 reaches across political parties and is a goal that everyone can support.
We have joined with a broad nonpartisan coalition of like-minded individuals and organizations to urge our supporters to Vote to End Hunger. In the run-up to this election, we are committed to asking candidates: “If elected, what will you do to end hunger, alleviate poverty and create opportunity in the U.S. and worldwide?” You can check out our previous blog post on this campaign to learn more.
Now would be a great time to set a reminder or write a note on your calendar to vote on or before November 6!
We hope that everyone will join us as we work to end hunger by 2030. To learn more about Rise Against Hunger’s advocacy efforts, sign up to be a Hunger Champion and join us as we raise our voices to end hunger.
