A bi-partisan group of lawmakers, along with non-profits and local businesses today announced a joint effort to end child hunger in Minnesota. CEO of Second Harvest Heartland Rob Zeaske calls feeding hungry kids the state’s largest “solvable problem” and says “there are more than enough resources to go around between the programs we have at the federal and the state level but also the community that supports our work and the work of hard-working food shelves across the state. ” One in six Minnesota kids is struggling to find food and Representative Erin Maye Quade of Apple Valley says the public can play a role in helping. She says “this has been a silent issue in Minnesota for far too long, and it affects far too many kids for it to continue to be that way. Learn about this in your own community, learn how you can get involved in any food shelf that’s in your community.” The so-called “Child Hunger Caucus” includes Hunger Solutions Minnesota and Blue Cross Blue Shield Minnesota.
