Hunger Task Force

Food Security Task Force iconThe goal of the Hunger Task Force is to reduce hunger in Missouri and dependence on emergency food supplies.

Priority Goal

Reduce food insecurity in Missouri, especially child hunger, through legislative and administrative advocacy and community education.

Prior Year Goals

  1. Advocate and educate Federal Legislators about the importance of passing a strong Child Nutrition Re-Authorization Act. We will also educate State Legislators about the prevalence of hunger in Missouri and advocate for support of nutrition programs.
  2. Monitor the Missouri Family Support Division as it undergoes continuous changes in policy and practice. The task force will meet with leaders within the department to share concerns and suggestions to the proposed changes.
  3. Work on increasing the number of school districts that take part in the community eligibility program regarding school lunches and breakfasts.
