Characteristics and Actions of Hunger Leaders Who are Not Directly in the Hunger Space

Edward M. Cooney, Former Staff Member
Published 2012

The goal of ending childhood hunger can be furthered effectively through alliances of anti-hunger advocates and partners from the education community, nutrition and health organizations, labor unions, and private sector food companies and trade associations. This paper offers a concise summary of these potential allied organizations and the roles they can and do play to address child hunger.  This paper is one in a series of occasional white papers produced by the Congressional Hunger Center that offer a concise “primer” on key aspects of  policymaking and implementation on childhood hunger and nutrition issues. The series is intended to provide a broad range of stakeholders with information they can use in seeking to improve the nutrition and health status of children. It is part of The CHILD Project (Children’s Hunger Initiative on Learning and Development), supported by the ConAgra Foods Foundation.
