COALITION ASKS CANDIDATES TO TALK ABOUT HUNGER


A coalition of 166 anti-hunger and -poverty groups has delivered the names of more than 631,000 voters to the Clinton and Trump campaign headquarters. The voters signed a petition calling on the political parties, candidates, and this Congress to make ending hunger a top priority. The Vote to End Hunger coalition also delivered the names to NBC News anchor Lester Holt, who will moderate the first presidential debate on Sept. 26. The coalition is urging Holt to ask Clinton and Trump the following question: “If elected, what will you do to end hunger, alleviate poverty, and create opportunity in the U.S. and worldwide?”
