The Hunger Leadership Awards is our annual celebration of outstanding leaders in the movement to end hunger. For this year’s virtual ceremony, held Wednesday, September 16, we are recognizing leaders who prove every day that hunger is solvable.
The recipients of our 2020 Corporate Partner Award are AARP Foundation and its president, Lisa Marsh Ryerson. We recognize the Foundation’s dedication to the fight against senior hunger, including leading support for the Elderly Simplified Application for SNAP and commitment to addressing the root causes of health disparities by focusing on hunger and other social determinants of health.
We have everything we need to solve hunger. What we are lacking is the political will and a coordinated effort. Those actually don't cost a thing.Lisa Marsh Ryerson, President, AARP Foundation; 2020 Corporate Partner Award Recipient
