Since launching in 2015, Hunger Impact Partners has widened its engagement in the public advocacy arena. Our state and federal public policy strategies include:
- An enrollment campaign in conjunction with advocating for state dollars in support of free and reduced-price meals application assistance for non-participating families.
- Joint application submission for federal funding to support a public-private partnership pilot program made possible through the federal Farm Bill Amendment authorizing $5 million for up to 10 projects.
- Reinstatement of an annual allocation in state funding for Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) to support program retention/fresh fruit and vegetable purchases.
- Tax-exempt designation for foods purchased by non-profits to support the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).
- Legislation to align CACFP meal sponsor transfers of licensed childcare centers with family daycare homes sponsor transfers.
