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.
