Vote to End Hunger is a broad coalition of individuals and organizations all committed to ending hunger in the U.S. and around the world by 2030. We believe that it will take the combined public and political will to do this and are working together to elevate the issue of hunger with candidates during the 2016 election cycle.
We are committed to asking candidates for public office in the 2016 election: “If elected, what will you do to end hunger, alleviate poverty, and create opportunity in the US and worldwide?”
