It’s likely that you’ve seen your Senator or Congress member in business attire, but have you ever seen them in a hairnet? This week to take a hands-on approach to changing the world, elected officials joined Rise Against Hunger and partner Kraft Heinz to package meals in Washington, D.C. More than 140 elected officials, non-profit executives, senior leaders from Kraft Heinz and U.S. Ambassadors filled funnels, bags and pallets to bring change and brighter futures to people in Mozambique.Carlos dos Santos, Ambassador for The Republic of Mozambique (pictured above), attended the event and shared:
These meals will go a long way in contributing towards education and development in Mozambique. It allows students to learn and contribute to society.
In a world where advocating for those in need is crucial for change, we are honored to have worked alongside government leaders who share our goal of a world without hunger!
As we look to activate our country’s leaders both in meal packaging and legislature, our Public Policy Agenda seeks to engage hunger champions in supporting laws, policies and systems that will help take us to our mission — to end hunger by 2030.
