October 11 – From Advocacy to Action: A Hunger Policy Primer

From city councils to Congress, decisions made by elected officials have an impact on hunger – both positive and negative. Our expert presenters will shed light on policies that have worsened food insecurity, sets of policies specifically intended to address hunger, and what is (or could be) happening in policy to address the issue in Oklahoma and across the United States.

Our Panelists:

Ty Jones Cox,
Vice President for Food Assistance, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Abi Fain,
Director of Policy and Government Relations, Intertribal Agriculture Council

Chris Bernard,
Executive Director, Hunger Free Oklahoma
