Hunger Summit and Lobby Day

The 2016 Hunger Summit attracted hundreds of people to Springfield to learn about hunger-relief efforts in Illinois. On Lobby Day, more than 250 advocates rallied at the Capitol and met with lawmakers to encourage them to support measures that would increase access to school breakfasts and summer meals. Advocates also asked lawmakers to support a bill that would provide SNAP recipients with more funds to buy produce at farmer’s markets.
