Lobby Day

The 2024 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference will be held June 3-5, 2024 with Lobby Day on June 5. Stay tuned for more updates!

Lobby Day was a huge success at the 2023 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference! This year, we encouraged registrants to participate, if able, in our in-person Lobby Day. Hundreds of anti-hunger advocates traveled to Capitol Hill to meet with their Members of Congress and staff to discuss key anti-hunger priorities. We also encouraged those who were not able to attend in-person to schedule virtual meetings.

Leave behinds, or one-pagers outlining our legislative asks, ensure that elected officials and their staff remember the important anti-hunger policies discussed during your meeting. See below to find the Leave Behinds provided for advocates at the 2023 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference, along with additional resources shared during the conference. 

2023 “Leave Behinds” (one-pagers outlining our legislative “asks”):

Farm Bill: Congress Must Protect and Strengthen SNAP, TEFAP, and Other Anti-Hunger Programs
Fiscal Year 2024 Budget and Appropriations Priorities
Tax Credits for Families Are Essential to Addressing Hunger and Must Be Expanded

“The National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference has been a great opportunity to deepen my knowledge in current food policy issues and best practices in communications strategy for anti-hunger policy. Each year our organization benefits from the excellent resources provided to enrich our work with lawmakers and constituents in advocating for a society that places elimination of hunger at the very top of the list. The skills we have learned have helped us form solid communications plans revolving around supplemental nutrition programs and build relationships with lawmakers and constituents alike. I highly recommend program and communications directors as well as staff attend the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference. Together we can eliminate hunger in the United States.”
