*2. **Save the Date: Hunger Action Training Wed. April 26 (LA) and Hunger Action Day May 24 (Sacramento)*

Hunger Action LA’s annual training on speaking to elected officials about food policy will be Wednesday April 26 at 6 pm, location: St. Mary’s Church, 961 S Mariposa (entry at 962 S Normandie). Meal will be provided.

You’ll learn about this year’s food policy issues at the state and federal level, how to frame your presentation to elected officials, and how to join advocates working to change things for low income, senior and disabled Californians. RSVP: info@hungeractionla.org

The training is a must for those who are attending Hunger Action Day in Sacramento. It will be the usual adventurous bus ride up with overnight stay on Tuesday May 23 for a day of rallies and legislative visits on Wednesday May 24. If you’re interested please contact info@hungeractionla.org . All are welcome and we will send you more logistics!

This year’s agenda includes AB 796, which if passed will finally restore the annual cost of living raise for 1.3 million Californians living under the poverty line with only an SSI check: AB 164 which will give California the flexibility to deal with massive threats of cuts to SNAP coming from the current Congress and presidential administration: and several other bills to improve child nutrition, clarify food donation laws, and help people coming out of prison with re-entry! Contact info@hungeractionla.org for more details.
