“I’ve been attending the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference for over 10 years now and each year the content has been relevant to the policy work I am currently doing and informs the work I will begin. I leave inspired and with a pocket full of new tools, new allies and renewed inspiration for the hard work that waits for me back at home.”
Jessica Bartholow, Legislative Advocate, Western Center on Law and Poverty (CA)
