IFCL meets with Bread for the World Event

As part of the IFCL effort to focus on food insecurity and affordable housing for the 2024 Indiana General Assembly, Deb and Phil Goodchild and Diana and Clark Hadley attended the “Hope for the Working Hungry!” event at St Luke’s United Methodist Church Tuesday, August 29.
Speakers reminded us, our fellow Hoosiers, the press and our elected officials that we don’t have to settle for food systems that leave hundreds of thousands of children and their families food insecure throughout Indiana Those who attended wrote more than 200 letters to Senator Braun, calling on him to co-sponsor the Food Date Labeling Act to help make sure food does not end up in landfills and can be in the hands of families who need it. Anyone can still go to Bread.org/Hope to send a message to Senator Braun. 
“Hope for the Working Hungry!” was not an end point for a movement to end hunger—it was a beginning. More than 115 people signed up to take the next step as an advocate for food systems that work for everyone by coming to the next congressional district team meeting in their area.
