On April 12th, CHC hosted the 2011 Congressional Hunger Center Awards Ceremony at the U.S. Botanic Garden where we celebrated accomplishments, honored exemplary leaders, and recognized our partners in the fight to eradicate hunger. We thank everyone who made this evening a success and for joining us in the movement to ensure access to food as a basic human right for all people. At the event, we honored Senator Jerry Moran and Representative Betty McCollum for their contributions to fighting hunger in the United States and overseas.
We also honored two CHC fellowship program alumni, Rich Stolz and Tammy Palmer, for their continued leadership in promoting food security in the United States and overseas, and for their dedication to social justice. We congratulate each of the honorees on their work and their spirit of bi-partisan cooperation. The awards were presented by Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, Representative Jo Ann Emerson, Representative James P. McGovern and Ambassador Tony Hall. We thank each of you for your significant contributions to fighting hunger in the United States and throughout the World. A special thank you to the following corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals for sponsoring the 5th Annual CHC Awards Ceremony!
