1 in 8 Nevadans struggles with hunger, and we find this unacceptable.
Advocacy is a vital part of the Food Bank’s commitment to alleviating hunger in our community. The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides a voice for the 1 in 8 Nevadans who faces hunger every day. That voice is heard in city halls, county government, Carson City, and Washington, D.C.
There is strength in numbers. Our advocacy program relies on passionate people like you to help us achieve our mission and fight for the right of each of our neighbors to have access to the food they need. Make a lasting difference in the lives of your neighbors by joining us in advocating to protect and defend policies that work to close the hunger gap at the federal, state, and local levels.
The Food Bank of Northern Nevada in partnership with the Nevada Department of Agriculture is broadcasting a portion of the upcoming White House Conference on Hunger, Health and Nutrition on Wednesday, September 28. The event will be held at the Washoe County Commission Chambers from 10 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. The event is free and all attendees must pre-register. Please click here to register to attend.
We work tirelessly to reduce food insecurity by promoting policies to increase food security at all levels of government through partnerships with public officials and community advocates.
