We lead efforts to identify and communicate the connections among poverty, hunger, and obesity among low-income people; conduct research to document the extent of hunger, its impact, and effective solutions; seek stronger federal, state and local public policies that will reduce hunger, undernutrition, and obesity; monitor the implementation of laws and serve as a watchdog of programs; provide coordination, training, technical assistance, and support on nutrition and anti-poverty issues to a nationwide network of advocates, service providers, food banks, program administrators and participants, and policymakers; and conduct public information campaigns to help promote changes in attitude and policies.
