Lobby Day

Leave Behinds

Be sure to download the Lobby Day Leave Behinds (pdf files) for your Capitol Hill visits:

Conference attendees have the opportunity on the third day of the conference to go to Capitol Hill to meet with their Members of Congress and staff regarding policy priorities outlined throughout the conference. The day will begin by hearing brief remarks from a few Members who are significant to our work (i.e. Members who sit on the Senate Agriculture Committee). FRAC and Feeding America staff can assist in scheduling visits prior to arrival in DC. Hill visit materials are supplied to all conference attendees.

For assistance in scheduling your Hill visits or for other inquiries regarding Lobby Day contact Kate Sims at FRAC or Jasmine Dickerson at Feeding America.
