The Anti-Hunger Champion Award honors New York State leaders who have taken strategic and decisive steps to reduce hunger in our state and beyond. We are pleased to present the 2017 award to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in recognition of her tireless efforts to protect and defend the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), strengthen core child nutrition programs, and to ensure every New Yorker has access to enough healthy food.

Many older adults skip meals so they can pay their monthly bills. There are times when some have to decide between buying food and purchasing needed medications. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, can help lessen those hardships by providing a way for older adults to obtain the healthy food they need.

The Food Research and Action Center has released the paper, "A Plan of Action to End Hunger in America." Many of the recommendations build on those in FRAC’s 2009 paper, “Ending Childhood Hunger by 2015: The Essential Strategies for Achieving the President’s Goal” and their collaboration with the National Anti-Hunger Organizations (NAHO) in similar efforts in 2004 and 2009. But the paper responds as well to new research and changes in the economy and policy environments, and reflects their most recent assessment of what is truly needed to end the disgrace of hunger in this country.
