Food Lifeline’s public policy platform aims to meet immediate hunger needs today while solving food insecurity for the future.  Every day we work to ensure the root causes of hunger are addressed through local, state and national advocacy efforts.  We focus on food systems, hunger & health, hunger prevention, poverty, equity and social justice.   Food Lifeline’s advocacy continues as state lawmakers convene in an unprecedented virtual session. Legislative sessions are dynamic.
