On July 14, JCPA Policy Manager Jill Borak offered testimony before the National Hunger Commission on the importance of supporting and strengthening federal anti-hunger programs, especially those benefiting children. "The JCPA’s commitment to the most vulnerable among us remains strong; this is why fighting hunger, particularly among children, remains one of our top priorities," Borak testified. "We believe feeding America’s hungry is not a political decision, but a moral one."
Congress created the bipartisan National Hunger Commission to build necessary consensus behind solid solutions on food insecurity. Based on testimony from a series of hearings, the Commission will provide final recommendations to Congress and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) by November 2015.
