Why do we advocate in addition to collecting and distributing food?
Because the food isn't enough.
Hunger Task Force serves as an emergency resource for people in food crisis. We cannot and do not meet the full food needs of low-income families. Part of our advocacy work is to ensure that nutrition and anti-hunger programs are adequately funded and operated in a manner that makes them accessible to those who need assistance.
We work to promote social policies to achieve a hunger free community tomorrow.
