About the Advocacy Playbook
This tool was developed by the Alliance to End Hunger as part of a larger collaboration to ignite and catapult volunteering in the hunger space by creating a national call to action and providing training opportunities focused on strategic volunteer activities.
ConAgra Foods Foundation brought the Alliance to End Hunger together with five other national partners- Cities of Service, New York City Coalition Against Hunger, Points of Light, Taproot Foundation and VolunteerMatch- to:
- To inspire and engage more people to dedicate their time, talents, and voice to the fight against child hunger.
- To increase volunteers’ participation in strategic service activities which can yield greater results and impact toward reducing hunger in the United States.
The Alliance to End Hunger will accomplish these goals by increasing participation in advocacy actions that will inform and engage elected officials to champion an end to hunger. This Advocacy Playbook and associated webinars and trainings are a part of that effort.
