The Hunger Advocacy Network is a collaborative of San Diego organizations that work together to reduce food insecurity in San Diego County by shaping state policy. Legislative advocacy at the state level is critical to breaking down barriers to food assistance in San Diego County and across California.
As newly elected co-chair of the Hunger Advocacy Network, executive director Anahid Brakke will serve alongside current co-chair Daniela Solano from Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank. “This closer partnership between the Hunger Coalition and Hunger Advocacy Network will better leverage our respective programs’ greatest strengths,” states Anahid. “Our goal is to identify more opportunities for the Hunger Coalition’s research and on-the-ground expertise to support Hunger Advocacy Network’s legislative efforts.”
