Advocates stand on the Capitol steps

Take a Stand Against Hunger

Lobby Day

Each year, advocates from the Food Depository’s network of programs and partners visit the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. These advocates educate legislators about hunger in their home districts, encouraging them to protect and strengthen anti-hunger policies at the state level.
