Your voice can be heard and it is important to understand how. Learning how to advocate for important issues is your first step.   Here is one of many resources to help you.  

Attend Roundtable forums. Request an IIRAH speaker for your organization. Talk to people you know and share what you have learned. Be a “myth buster.”

Call, write, email, and challenge your elected officials at all levels of government. Learn more about anti-hunger legislation and programs to end hunger.

Vote for candidates who support hunger relief programs with policies that promote food security and maintain dignity for all.

Ask your state representatives and senator to raise Idaho’s minimum wage.

Encourage your religious community or favorite social service organization to join forces with IIRAH and become an endorser.

Attend one of IIRAH’s forums. Meet other people who are working to end hunger in Idaho, learn about current issues, and steps you can take to be an advocate for those who are struggling.

Sign up for the Food Resource and Action Center’s newsletter to receive action alerts on important national food policies.

Support your local food system by planting a garden, volunteering for a community garden, buying produce from the farmer’s market, and asking your grocery store to stock locally grown foods.
